Graph Tech Introduces Black TUSQ XL Fanned Fret for Bass

Graph Tech Guitar Labs Black TUSQ XL 4-String Fanned Bass Nut

Graph Tech Guitar Labs has introduced a new set of their Black TUSQ XL nuts to fit fanned fret basses and guitars. The series includes models for four-string, five-string, and six-string basses.

“Black TUSQ XL is designed to boost guitar tone and performance,” Graph Tech writes of the material. “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 PTFE to improve the tuning performance of the guitar.”

Each of the bass nuts are pre-slotted with a flat bottom for easy installation. They’re all available now for $17.95 each.
