Graphtech Tusq Nut

If you have an acoustic or electric guitar, you owe it to yourself to hear the difference a TUSQ nut can 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. 

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 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!

Replacement nut

A big shout out to Steve, did a great job, many thanks to all at Northwest Guitars.

Peter Bilbie
Tusq nut

Fitted my Tele without needing any adjustment. It transformed the instrument. Highly recommended

Rob Wagstaff
Transformed Tele

The best single upgrade I’ve done to any guitar. Tuning stability on my MIM Tele has improved as expected but the guitar sounds way better on open strings

Graphtec PQ-5042-00slotted Nut

Good quality but but it was to short . Easily fixed though by cutting up a plastic business card to pack it up higher. The nut has made a big difference to what the old one was. D
