Graph Tech’s vision for Nubone was to produce an affordable alternative to plastic nuts. 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 derivative of Graph Tech’s proprietary TUSQ® material and it offers very similar tonal characteristics to the 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 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. Listening to your guitar equipped with NuBone® is like hearing your guitar for the first time again! Great tone at a great price that’s Nubone®
