White Bone Guitar Nuts
Many luthiers and guitar manufacturers prefer bone guitar nuts for their instruments. The bone we offer is oxen bone from the Middle East. This bone has minimal porosity and a great appearance. Its density and minimal porosity are features that yield good intonation and clarity.
White bone is the traditional choice for making nuts and saddles on quality instruments and it is by far the most popular. While it is white there are subtle color variations that add to the beauty of this natural material.
Let's keep this real simple. There are 3 size nuts for guitars and all are oversize on height and length for ease of working:
1) 1/8" Thick Nut Blanks for Fender Guitars.
2) Small Standard Nut Blanks. These are slightly less than 1/4" thick and are for Gibson, Taylor and many other Guitars.
3) Large Standard Nut Blanks. These will finish at 1/4" thickness and are for Martin Guitars and many others.
If you are uncertain if you need a small or a large then you should get a large as it will work for either one.
On our main page you will also see categories showing shaped " Ready-Nut Blanks " as well as oversize blanks.
