What is the standard Gibson SG nut?


Recommended Posts

What nut would be on a '08 stardard gibson sg? I think mine is bone, I bought my sg used, but i'll describe it. It is a very white color, almost plastic looking, but it is very, very dense to the touch, and looks and feels like bone. i'll post a few pics.




Sorry for the low res.

I found this on the gibson site:

Nut Material

The nut on the SG Standard is made from Corian, which is mainly composed of acrylic polymer. This popular synthetic alternative to bone offers a very durable material, delivers enhanced sustain, and holds the tolerances of the precision cuts made in the slotting process. It is installed into the top surface of the neck, butting up to the end of the fingerboard to ensure proper tone and sustain transfer, and its nut slots are cut with Gibson’s PLEK system to ensure precise fit, break angle, and string spacing.
