    Does anyone know the exact replacement nut to buy from Graphtech for a 2015 Pro Jet? I doing a bunch of mods (including the bridge) and want to change out the nut while I'm at it. I don't have a caliper to measure.

    Why do you want to replace the Tusq nut? My Tech told me they are not bad at all.

    They are fantastic. I have one on my sslvo...big time improvement in tuning and sound over the Delrin...also put one on my Fender Strat...very nice as well.

    Their 6143 nuts are direct replacement on the 5420 - might be a good place to start for your Jet. That size can be had in Tusq, Tusq XL (the black ones) and NuBone, which is OEM on the new 5420Ts.

    The GraphTech Web site states that" NuBone is a derivative of GraphTechs highly resonant Tusq material".

    The string spacing on the 6060 is just a but narrow. I think the 6143 would be just right.

    I'm interested to hear how the 6143 works out.

    I hope you report back after you get the nut on!

    Will do. Doing a lot of stuff to her right now. But, I'll send pics, and leave a review, when I'm done.
