A bone nut will instantly improve your guitar’s tone, sustain, and tuning stability. The natural lubricating properties of bone keep the strings from binding, helping to keep your guitar in tune even if you use a tremolo.
Bone has a balanced and clear tone, allowing the natural voice of your guitar to resonate. Stock nuts on most guitars are plastic or synthetic, and dull the tone of the guitar.
A bone saddle on an acoustic offers the same improvement at the tail end of your guitar.
Most production guitars come with plastic nuts and saddles, which dull the natural sound of the instrument. This upgrade will open up the tone and make your guitar sound much better.
