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 permanently lubricated to improve the tuning performance of the guitar.

Best for Electric Guitars and BASS.

    Good fit for Yamaha acoustics with 15” radius

    This nut is a good fit for my Yamaha APXT2 guitar. I replaced the urea nut with this TUSQ nut.

    This should be able to fit most other Yamaha acoustics with 15-16" radius. The nut height and slots makes for low action at the first few frets close to the nut.

    Appreciate the TUSQ XL material for avoiding friction "pings" during tuning of guitar strings. Makes tuning easier.

    Gold Standard nut

    Every GraphTech nut is worlds beyond common plastic, and even bone, nuts. There is no comparable material out there. If there is a drop-in option for your guitar, you absolutely must buy one! If the nut needs a little shaping or height adjustment, do whatever you can to get it. This is one of the fastest ways to improve your acoustic guitar's tone and reliability at the same time! I'm fortunate enough to be able to do the work myself, and I installed this on a $140 guitar, along with a GraphTech saddle and bridge pins. With a proper action setup and these parts, a room full of musicians all played it and regularly guessed that it cost $500 - $800. And I'm not a professional luthier.

    If you're reading these reviews, you are most of the way committed to buying one. Do it now!
