If you have an acoustic or vintage guitar, you owe it to yourself to hear the difference a TUSQ nut makes. 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 worlds most renowned guitar manufacturers, luthiers, and playing professionals. TUSQ nuts have rich tone and sustain, without the inconsistency found in Ivory, Bone, or other natural materials. Bone & Ivory have hard and soft spots (grain) throughout each piece, hampering consistent transfer of vibrations to the guitar top. TUSQ nuts are designed to transfer the right frequencies more efficiently from string to the guitar body, causing your guitar's acoustics to come alive!
