The Graph Tech TUSQ XL Gibson Style Slotted Nut is the perfect upgrade for the Les Paul or similar sized nuts. TUSQ XL is impregnated with PTFE for permanent lubrication ensuring strings don't bind in their slots during bending or tremolo use, improving tuning stability and reducing string breakage. The TUSQ XL material is harmonically rich and transfers vibrations efficiently to the guitar, as a man-made material it is consistent from piece to piece with no hidden soft spots associated with bone. Graph Tech nuts are supplied slightly oversized to allow for final fit and shaping (material works easily with fine sandpaper).

Great Upgrade

Recently fitted to my Gibson Custom Shop R9 1959 Reissue. I think there is a slight improvement to the tone and definitely looks more in keeping with the aesthetic of the guitar than the stock white plastic nut.
