If you have a high quality acoustic or vintage guitar, you owe it to yourself to hear the difference a TUSQ nut will make. Compared to standard materials, you'll hear crystal clear bell-like high end, big open lows, and a noticeable increase in overall sustain.

TUSQ nuts are designed to transfer the right frequencies more efficiently from the string to the guitar body, and have been proven to increase a guitar's harmonic sustain. Acoustic guitars come alive with delicate highs and big open lows!

TUSQ is far superior in sound and appearance to synthetics such as Micarta and Corian. The high levels of heat and pressure used in making TUSQ results in its exotic ivory-like appearance.

Join those who know great guitar tone! TUSQ is used by: Martin, Taylor, Larrivee, Gibson Acoustic Guitars, Tacoma Guitars, Ovation, Rick Turner, Garrison Guitars, Breedlove, Manuel Rodriguez, Rainsong, Carvin, Landola and many, many more.

TUSQ has quickly become an important tone performance tool for many guitar manufacturers, luthiers and playing professionals around the world.

Bone and ivory have hard and soft spots (grain), throughout each piece, hampering consistent transfer of vibrations to the guitar top.

TUSQ nuts have rich tone and sustain, without the inconsistency found in ivory, bone and other natural materials.

      Comments about Graph Tech TUSQ Tacoma Slotted Acoustic Guitar Nut:

      Other than the XL version, these are the best out there. Replaced nut, saddle and bridge pins on a 1999 Tacoma DR20E. The original nut & saddle were TUSQ as well, but bridge pins were plastic. Like any nut, this will require a process of shaping and fine tuning to get the fit and action perfect. However, having good 200 and 400 grit sandpaper and nice nut files, and a peg winder will make it easier.

      Be sure and file down the area on the peg board / fret board joint to remove all the old glue and get it smooth. I sanded the bottom until the strings were in the 0.025" range (an action gauge or feeler gauges are necessary), then worked on the slots w/ my nut files to get the action around 0.020" on high E, grading to 0.022" on low E.

      Strings will not bind on this nut.

            Comments about Graph Tech TUSQ Tacoma Slotted Acoustic Guitar Nut:

            Bought this to replace the broken nut on my old yamaha acoustic. It fit perfectly without any sanding necessary. I actually would have liked it to be just a hair taller. The guitar sounded good and the intonation was perfect. I don't know if it improved the sound as I hadn't played it in 2 years.

              Got to replace an old nut on my acoustic. It fit well with minimal filing needed. Sounds better than ever! I'll be putting one on most of my electrics. (I have two vintage strats that I won't put non original parts on)
