Tone Ninja Guitar Nut - Fender Style for both flat or curved slots
Tone Ninja nuts are made from an engineering polymer (more about that later) that was specifically chosen to meet the specific characteristics required of an outstanding nut for your guitar - namely high density (to transmit tone), low friction (to avoid sticking and binding), and easy workability (to allow perfect custom fits) while retaining wear resistance (so it doesn't wear out).
Originally, nuts were traditionally made of bone, carved and slotted to suit. The main problem with bone is that it can be hard to work, and can vary in density.
As technology progressed, various different materials were used, including brass, graphite, low cost plastic (still used on many entry level instruments and even some higher priced guitars), engineered plastics such as micarta, corian and Graph Tech's Tusq material (which is actually an injection molding plastic called polyphenylene sulfide).
When they were selecting a material for Tone Ninja nuts, they wanted to improve on these materials rather than just imitate them, and as a result selected an acetal copolymer with glass fiber reinforcement (For the technically minded, more information here) because of it's high stiffness, low coefficient of friction and excellent dimensional stability.
Available in 'traditional' white or a more modern black finish.
Tone Ninja guitar nut in an off-white finish, suitable for a Fender Stratocaster or Telecaster. This nut has a total of 3 spacers underneath that can be left untouched if being fitted into a neck nut slot that is flat or the 3 spacers can be sanded out for necks that have a curved nut slot.
Even though this Tone Ninja nut is intended to be as close fit to specific guitars as they can, each guitar is different and therefore may still require some minor alterations to the nut length, height and thickness to ensure a perfect fit for your instrument. If you in doubt about making these modifications, then we recommend taking the instrument to a local qualified guitar luthier.
