2pc. Dyed Bone Nut Blanks for Cigar Box Guitar
This is a pack of two black dyed bone nut blanks perfect for cigar box guitars and other homemade instruments. Here are the dimensions:
- Length: 1.6875" (42mm)
- Height: 0.375" (~10mm)
- Thickness: 0.195" (5mm)
These blanks are made from cow bone and are perfectly rectangular in shape. They are soaked in the dye, which permeates into the bone. However, due to natural variations in texture and mineralization, these pieces have a somewhat mottled coloration (rather than being a full solid black). Also, the darkness of the dye decreases towards the center of each piece (they are lighter in the center), so some touch-up with a black marker may be necessary after filing and shaping. You will need to file/shape them to your needs and add string notches as desired.
