What is the Difference in TUSQ Materials?

TUSQ

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

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.

    Jim Root Telecaster

    Exactly what I needed didn’t have to alter the shape or fit only to use thicker strings.

    It fit but a little buzzy on low e

    Fender MIM 12R deluxe neck replacement nut.

    Needed to be a little taller. Can always take away material but can't add it. Think I will try a 5043 and sand the curve in the bottom

    Excellent nut!

    I just replaced the factory nut on my Fender Classic Player Telecaster Deluxe. Even after getting a brand new set of strings, the G always sound like an old dead string. The new Graphtech Black TUSQ XL nut fixed it right up. The bottom as of the string slots in the new nut stood pretty tall, and I don't gave any nut fikes, so I took my time and sanded down the backside of the nut to get the string height just right, Since the new nut already had the proper 12" radius, it was easy to do. Took out the center nub and then sanded it down a little bit at a time until the high and low e strings would just hold a .71mm guitar pick at the first fret when tuned to pitch. Also saw a marked improvement in tuning stability when using the trem bar. Easily the best twelve bucks I've ever spent on a guitar.
