OVERVIEW

Improved the sustain and clarity of your guitar.

The Graph Tech TUSQ jumbo slotted nut (PQ-6010-00) is a replacement nut for Gibson guitars.

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 Graph Tech TUSQ on your guitar.

This Graph Tech guitar nut is made from TUSQ, a proprietary material that 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 guitar 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 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!

Great for gibson SG

By David Strahs

Comments about Graph Tech TUSQ Jumbo Gibson slotted nut:

I loved the ease and how easily is sanded, it fixed my buzzing problems and it didnt take to long to install. The only ill have to wait for is how well it holds up. Its only been a month but its been great so far.
I have a tusq nut on my bass and I love it, when I bought my SG the nut was all chipped up and cracking so i bought this one to replace it. It slides easily and the slots were perfect.
I have gotten nuts in the past and so far this is the best one. I haven't compared it to bone though.
great price for a slotted nut, I only had to sand it to fit in the slot which took about an hour of sanding and fitting. It would have been faster if my paper had been larger.

    Comments about Graph Tech TUSQ Jumbo Gibson slotted nut:

    I am the original owner of a 1978 Larrivee L model cedar top that has been well used and loved for forty years. I recently had it refretted, replaced the nut and bridge with bone and had a K&K pickup system installed. New life for my old friend but I've never been happy with the spacing at the nut as my fingers have rather blunt ends and can inadvertently mute the high E on certain chords. After having the luthier tell me that changing the spacing was a bad idea (actually refused to do it) I decided to give it a go myself. This TUSQ nut was the closest replacement I could find but gave me only 1/16" more space between E strings. I didn't think that would be enough but the price was right for goofing around with it.
    Long story even longer, I do all of my own setting up on my instruments (without proper tools) but have never replaced a nut so I very carefully had to get this booger to fit in the mismatched slot. It took many tries of sanding and installing (repeat X ?) but I finally got it right. What I didn't expect was that 16th of an inch actually fixed my stubby finger problem perfectly. So put that in your bong and smoke it you snooty know-it-all GC luthier. The even bigger surprise was the sound. The volume, balance and tone improved tremendously so I couldn't be happier with this product. I'll have to give the bridge a go next I guess.
