Tusq

This is the brand name for an alternate man-made material that is often used today in place of traditional bone or ivory for acoustic guitar saddles and nuts. Tusq saddles and nuts are actually made from an extremely high-quality polymer, formed by high levels of heat and pressure, which allows them to transfer string energy and sustain more consistently and efficiently. They are now used in instruments from Taylor, Gibson, Tacoma, and many other manufacturers.
