TUSQ XL STRAT/TELE STYLE SLOTTED NUT - AGED: PQL-5000-AGFinally, the breakthrough you've been waiting for. Now you can have it all - the great tone of TUSQ, classic good looks AND permanent lubrication. If you love the look of a vintage white nut, but you keep going out of tune when you bend strings or use your tremolo, then TUSQ XL is just what you need.
TUSQ XL is designed to boost guitar tone and performance. This precision engineered nut is made with a specially formulated material which couples the strings' vibrations to the neck and brings out the hidden harmonics and richness in every note. It is based on the highly resonant TUSQ man made ivory, but is impregnated with Teflon to improve the tuning performance of the guitar.<.P Other nut materials have a tendency to bind the strings in their slots. When you are tuning your guitar you might hear the tell tale "ping" of the strings releasing under tension or have difficulty keeping your guitar in tune when using a tremolo or doing string bends. There are many temporary solutions to this problem, but wouldn't you rather a permanent one? TUSQ XL has Teflon lubrication impregnated all the way through the material (Teflon is the slipperiest substance on earth...500 times more slippery than graphite.), so you never have to worry about string binding at the nut again. Since the Teflon is impregnated right through the material, it doesn't matter if you sand or file to a different shape, it will keep on working. So go ahead and use that tremolo or do massive string bends with the confidence that you will stay in tune.
This is a brand new slotted Tusq XL nut. Graph Tech has "aged" the look of this nut to give it a Vintage look. The specs are shown below:

and players agree...acoustic guitars come alive with TUSQ man-made
ivory. TUSQ is simply more efficient at transferring vibrations to your
guitar top, resulting in big open lows and clear bell like highs.
Bone and Ivory nuts and saddles have one inherent problem - they're
made from organic materials, and therefore have inconsistent soft or
dead spots because of their natural grain. TUSQ nuts, saddles and
bridge pins are precision engineered under high pressure and heat,
specifically to govern which frequencies are transferred to your guitar
top (tone), and which frequencies remain in the strings (sustain).
TUSQ is consistent from piece to piece, and within each piece, to offer
you harmonically rich tones without the problems associated with
