Plays it part in improving your guitar
Muirgheasáin 20.05.2021
I was having tuning stability problems and other issues with my American Stratocaster, so I decided to follow the advice of others and got one of these nuts.

I changed the nut along with the tuners and the trem / bridge so I don't know whether just installing this would be enough for you to realise your objective or not - but if you want to do things a step at a time on a budget, I would recommend you start with installing one of these and see how things go.

You could get a tech to deal with this for you, but in my opinion this is easy to install. Make sure you have some abrasive paper and a small file handy to deal with the adjustments you will likely have to make to the nut. You may also have to rub away some width depending on the size of your last nut. But it's easy to work on, and I had no problems.

Once it was on and the guitar was tuned up, the noises that indicate strings are not stable on the nut were miraculously gone and the guitar no longer goes out of tune so easily ! As I said, I upgraded two other key components of the guitar, but I got out of this nut exactly what I expected ! So, I would recommend you get one of these and maybe you'll have the same experience as me !

I plan to install a second one on my other Strat (because I bought two of these at the same time in case I screwed up with the first one - worth considering !! ).

Very nice and fits the Harley Benton Te-52 very well
FSXPilot14 25.11.2019
The install of this new Graph Tech nut was very easy. You can remove the TE-52 Nut really easy with a little bit of force, mine was a little bit cracked due to heavy bending. Just pressed the new Graph Tech nut in the slot, filed the edge just a little bit and it was done. It adds a nice radius the the strings of my tele, the previous nut was almost flat. One of the easiest upgrades for playability. Aswell as a 6 saddle bridge to fix the common 3 saddle intonation issue. Packaging was nice and the nut feels really smooth and not sharp like the stock one. Would really recommend!

Better tuning stability and sustain.

Bought as a direct replacement nut for the generic and plastic thing on my Fender Lite Ash Strat and made the world of difference.

The best nuts ever, period
Pohorc 14.10.2021
I have been using GraphTech TUSQ XL nuts for years - I bought my first one to save a G-string gripping Gibson SG from tuning hell, and a guitar that just wouldn't hold tune before became a guitar that can survive an entire gig with no major tuning touch-ups.

I have since replaced all my guitar nuts with GraphTech TUSQ XL nuts with great results. This is my ninth GraphTech TUSQ XL nut, so I expect it to work as great as the other eight!

If you have tuning issues or even slight tuning instabilities, before dropping 100€ for shiny new tuners or buying Nut Sauce every so often, try installing one of these - you won't regret it. No more scraping pencil lead and messy syringe applications, the nut does all the work on its own.
