Now there is a great substitute for cheap plastic nuts and saddles. NuBone gives you premium tone without the premium price!
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.
Nubone is an environmentally friendly, man made material that is made to close tolerances under high heat and pressure which contributes to its hardness, workability, exotic appearance, and most importantly, guitar performance. It is odorless when sanded and harder than plastic which means it lasts and performs longer. Get great tone at a great price. Listening to your guitar equipped with NuBone is like hearing your guitar again for the first time!
