Plastic nuts and saddles vary greatly; many are made without any consideration for the instrument, tend to be too soft or too brittle, even hollow, killing tone and sustain. NuBone is designed to enhance tone and is backed by 20 years of research and development.
NuBone is a derivative of Graph Tech’s highly resonant TUSQ material, manufactured to very close tolerances under high heat and pressure. We use specific ratios that contribute to NuBone’s hardness, workability, appearance, and most importantly, guitar performance. Odorless when sanded, it is strong, outlasting and outperforming plastic. NuBone is the answer!
NuBone delivers clear highs, a nice lowend with overall fullness and a balanced sound that has increased harmonics and volume. With similar tonal characteristics to our highly esteemed TUSQ, NuBone does not dampen vibration like plastic.
