Improved the sustain and clarity of your guitar.
The Graph Tech TUSQ jumbo slotted nut (PQ-6010-00) is a replacement nut for Gibson guitars.
If you have an acoustic or vintage guitar, you owe it to yourself to hear the difference a TUSQ guitar nut, saddle and bridge pins make. Compared to standard materials such as bone, Micarta or Corian, you'll hear more harmonics with every note you play when you use Graph Tech TUSQ on your guitar.
This Graph Tech guitar nut is made from TUSQ, a proprietary material that is precision engineered under high pressure and heat. It is specifically formulated to deliver the right frequencies with the optimum transfer rate to the top of your guitar every time. Because of the way TUSQ is made, it is a consistent material that is rich in tone and harmonic content.
TUSQ has quickly become an important tone performance tool for some of the world's most renowned guitar manufacturers, luthiers, and playing professionals. TUSQ guitar nuts and saddles have rich tone and sustain, without the inconsistency found in ivory, bone and other natural materials. Bone and ivory have hard and soft spots (grain) throughout each piece, hampering consistent transfer of vibrations to the guitar top. TUSQ nuts, saddles and bridge pins are designed to transfer the right frequencies more efficiently from the string to the guitar body. Acoustic guitars come alive. Electric guitars will get a brighter sound and increased harmonic content.
