Nuts matter – your guitar's resonance, action and tuning depend on them. And not all nuts are made equally, which is why Graph Tech's range of self-lubriacting nuts offers a way for players to improve or replace worn or unsuitable parts. The company has a vast range of options for acoustic and electric guitar, but if you're specifically a player of of vintage spec Fenders or lucky enough to own a vintage original, its got good news for you.
Its new TUSQ XL Slotted six-string nuts have been specifically designed for original Fender guitars and re-issues made in the 1950’s, '60s and '70s, featuring a 7.25” fingerboard radius. These 'precision engineered' nuts are constructed with Graph Tech’s TUSQ man-made ivory.
They can be sanded down easily to match the height of your original, though we'd recommend handing the job to a pro where possible because the nut is so important to the playability and sound of your guitar.
