What is the Difference in TUSQ Materials?


TUSQ nuts have a rich tone without the inconsistency found in ivory, bone, and other natural materials. Bone and ivory have hard and soft spots (grain) throughout each piece, hampering the consistent transfer of vibrations to the guitar top. TUSQ nuts are designed to transfer the right frequencies more efficiently from the string to the guitar body.

Best for Acoustic Guitars.


TUSQ XL and Black TUSQ XL nuts are designed to boost guitar tone and performance. These precision-engineered nuts are made with a specially formulated material that couples the strings' vibrations to the neck and brings out the hidden harmonics and richness in every note. It is based on the highly resonant TUSQ man-made ivory but is impregnated with PTFE to improve the tuning performance of the guitar.

Best for Electric Guitars and BASS.

    Fit better than OEM!

    The nut that shipped with my Ibanez AT-100 had problems from the beginning. Swapping it out with the GraphTech 5040-00 gave me my guitar back.

    Squire Nut replacement

    Fit perfectly on the Squire neck. I needed to adjust the height but that was easy with some fine grit sandpaper. All my upgraded guitars get graphtech nuts. Better tuning stability and better sound.

    Nice Product

    I tried this, but it the s/s was a little to wide, so I bought a narrower one. Will save this for another project though

    Fits a Starcaster

    I'm currently modding a Starcaster and was planning to buy a 42mm nut but realized that it was definitely going to be a little too long and would affect the string distances. I've had to sand it down a little to lower the action, but that was expected from a pre-cut nut and it's definitely better than it being too short! I can definitely tell the difference in terms of sustain and tuning stability.
