Plastic nuts and saddles vary greatly and many are cheaply made, too soft, too brittle, or hollow. These inconsistencies can kill sustain and tone. NuBone is a tone-enhancing nut and saddle material backed by 20 years of research and development. Now there is no reason to accept a cheap plastic nut or saddle when you can use Nubone. Perfect for the repair shop!
Nubone is a derivative of Graph Tech's proprietary TUSQ material and offers very similar tonal characteristics to our highly esteemed TUSQ. Nubone doesn't damp string vibration like plastic; instead, it transfers the optimum frequencies to the guitar allowing for more volume, more tone, and more harmonics. Also, Nubone is beautiful to work with because it is consistent throughout, files and sands easily, and won't melt on a belt sander.
