    Tusq XL nuts on the other hand are self lubricating, so offer improved tuning stability without having any maintenance. For this purpose, the strings are bent over the saddle in a sharp angle. You are wrong and a liar. I am considering switching the nut and saddle to bone based only off of what I have read. On some very sensitive guitars bone can make the sound too zingy and clacky and tusk may actually sound better. Bridge Saddle Classical Guitar The saddle serves to position the strings at a defined distance to top and fretboard.

    If you look closely to the nut or saddle, you can also distinguish bone-colored plastic from real bone. Plastic has a perfectly smooth surface.It will also rob you of your high end and sustain.

    A bone nut gives superior sound to your strings, as plastic nuts tend to cause the strings to catch on minute scratches and grooves, and not vibrate as cleanly.To or ears, it sounded just as good as the bone if not better and is much more durable.

    Tusq tends to produce notes that have more sustain and many find the tone much clearer and sharper.

    These nuts are often screwed in, so they are effortless to change.

    On some very sensitive guitars bone can make the sound too zingy and clacky and tusk may actually sound better.

    On the saddle, the strings like to dig, resulting in a burr sooner or later, which leads to broken strings.
