Note: All Graph Tech nuts and saddles are slightly long and wide to ensure extra room to achieve a perfect fit for your guitar. This extra material can easily be removed with fine grit sandpaper.
Here's an easy way to find the nut you need
1: Measure your nuts length, thickness and height (highest portion).
2: Click on the Sort button and sort by length
3: Find the nuts that are your length or slightly longer (we make them a bit longer to sand for final finish
4: Now, out of those nuts, find the correct thickness (or slightly over) and height (or slightly over)
5: If you are buying a slotted nut, measure your current string spacing and find something close to yours.
Guitar makers and players agree...acoustic guitars come alive with TUSQ man-made ivory. TUSQ is simply more efficient at transferring vibrations to your guitar top, resulting in big open lows and clear bell like highs.
Bone and Ivory nuts and saddles have one inherent problem - they're made from organic materials, and therefore have inconsistent soft or dead spots because of their natural grain. TUSQ nuts, saddles and bridge pins are precision engineered under high pressure and heat, specifically to govern which frequencies are transferred to your guitar top (tone), and which frequencies remain in the strings (sustain).
TUSQ is consistent from piece to piece, and within each piece, to offer you harmonically rich tones without the problems associated with natural materials.
TUSQ delivers a rich tone, crystal clear bell like high end with big open lows and a significant increase in harmonic content and harmonic sustain. Increased harmonics equals more richness and character in your tone. Its the difference between a four piece choir and a twelve piece choir singing every time your play a note.
"TUSQ nuts and saddles have improved the sustain and clarity on all our guitars." - Bob Taylor - President Taylor Guitars
