Improved the sustain and clarity of your guitar

The Graph Tech TUSQ slotted guitar nut is a direct replacement nut for Epiphone guitars that have a nut slot width of ¼".

If you have an acoustic or vintage guitar, you owe it to yourself to hear the difference a TUSQ guitar nut, saddle, and bridge pins make. Compared to standard materials such as bone, Micarta or Corian, you'll hear more harmonics with every note you play when you use TUSQ on your guitar.

The Graph Tech guitar nut is made from TUSQ, a proprietary material which is precision engineered under high pressure and heat. It is specifically formulated to deliver the right frequencies with the optimum transfer rate to the top of your guitar every time. Because of the way TUSQ is made, it is a consistent material that is rich in tone and harmonic content.

TUSQ has quickly become an important tone performance tool for some of the world's most renowned guitar manufacturers, luthiers and playing professionals. TUSQ nuts and saddles have rich tone and sustain, without the inconsistency found in ivory, bone and other natural materials. Bone and ivory have hard and soft spots (grain) throughout each piece, hampering consistent transfer of vibrations to the guitar top. TUSQ guitar nuts, saddles and bridge pins are designed to transfer the right frequencies more efficiently from the string to the guitar body. Acoustic guitars come alive. Electric guitars will get a brighter sound and increased harmonic content.

Features

  • Has a crystal clear-bell like high-end and big open low-end
  • Laboratory-proven to enhance harmonic content (up to 200% over other materials)
  • Engineered for maximum vibration transfer
  • Used by the world's finest guitar manufacturers
  • Consistent quality from piece to piece and within each piece
  • No flat or dead spots that can be found in bone or ivory
  • Easy to work with – can be filed and sanded; will not chip or flake

Don't just fix your guitar - improve it!

      Comments about Graph Tech TUSQ Epiphone 1/4" slotted nut:

      I run primarily Epiphones, both acoustic and electric. This is my second install, first was on a Wildkat and this on an ES-200. The nut fit with no help from me. Sounds much better than plastic.

      What more can I say

      By Beatle Freek

      from Fla Rid Duh

      Comments about Graph Tech TUSQ Epiphone 1/4" slotted nut:

      So much easier to sand than Bone or Plastic Definitely worth the effort. The only time I say yes to plastic is if your going helping out some kid just starting out. After all,why spend $10.00 on some kid who will quit in two weeks when you can spend 99 cents.
      I will be forever GRATEFUL to a friend who introduced Graph Tech Nuts and Graph Tech Saddles They really make a difference ! I can assure you I am not being paid a Nickel to say this To install a saddle does not require much knowledge but to replace a Nut requires a little but it is definitely worth your while to take it to your local Music store, if you don't know what you're doing Before I knew how to do it I actually had some clerk tell me "Yeah well if you have extra hair in you ears you might appreciate the difference" And this was for a low budget Ibanez I had at the time. Trust me, I've played for friends that love music but can't tell the difference between an A# and a D natural and even if I'm playing an inexpensive Guitar with Graph Tech nuts and saddles, Usally the first thing they say after the first song is "Hey that's a nice Guitar what kind is it ?" they don't believe me when I explain I am playing an inexpensive make and the Nut and saddle make the difference. of course the current one I ordered is for my Epiphone Texan which I am happy to say that even though I ordered with the bargain rate shipping, I received it just four business days after I ordered it. Thank you so much Musician's Friend.
      My only gripe is that I didn't know what size I needed for the Epiphone Texan. Had I known that, I would've got free shipping with the Guitar. But Hey, for $3.50 shipping what's there really to complain about ?

      Love this TUSQ slotted nut

      By nailpickr

      from Kentucky

      Comments about Graph Tech TUSQ Epiphone 1/4" slotted nut:

      Just what my guitar needed. I am completely satisfied with this product.
      Fit my Gretsch G5120 perfectly. I only had to sand it some on the bottom to lower my string a bit at the first fret. Bigsby works well with string sliding back and forth through the nut now. Seems like my guitar stays in tune better now.
      I feel it is a great value.

      Better Than Bone

      By Echoman-AAYcL

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Graph Tech TUSQ Epiphone 1/4" slotted nut:

      Never ranked anything better than this strictly because they saved my guitar from tuning and sustain issues.
      Easy to work with and better than bone.
      Improved tone and sustain.
      Saved my guitars from horrible bone nuts that were cut too low and were hard to fix.
