"A simple nut repair solution that will blend right in and leave you with a stable and lubricated nut slot." - Joe Glaser (Owner, Glaser Instruments)

Nut Rescue is a unique blend of materials made to perfectly fill and lubricate a slot and look great. Developed for over 25 years in a pro repair shop, this excellent resource is now a product (per frequent request).

Originality and efficiency are important to us all and sometimes it makes good sense to fill and recut an instrument nut - rather than replacing it. For this, Nut Rescue can be used and handled in the same way you use baking soda and/or bone dust to fill nuts but with the added benefit of great color match, durability, sound, and lubrication.

Nut Rescue comes in a set of three shades to match most nuts:

  • Black (Graphite, Ebony, Buffalo)
  • Cream (Aged or Natural Bone, Ivory, Tusq)
  • Bright (Modern Bleached Bone and Corian)

Why it matters:

When a guitar string is bent, string is borrowed from behind the nut and friction is a problem. Nut Rescue's low friction is critical for tuning and its long wearability allows many original nuts to be saved and give years of use. This spares a neck the wear and tear of replacement, saves time, and is a valuable repair.

All three colors take CA glue nicely and without discoloration.


1) Clean the slot with a file

2) Score the slot with a razor

3) Use the included applicator to fill the slot with Nut Rescue (tamp it down gently)

4) Touch the slot with a bead of thin superglue (let the glue cure)

5) File to preferred height

Easy nut repair

This product works great, I don’t have to save the dust from saddle and nut work anymore.

Nut rescue colors

Honestly I haven’t used it yet but the colors look like a match for most nuts…and it looks like I’ll have enough to last for a long time.

One of our most useful tools in the shop!

Robert M.

Fast and trouble-free ordering and shipping. Filled a 46 slot in 3 small applications. Used a toothpick to apply the superglue. Minimal sanding to clean up. Filed a 13 slot (please don't ask why) in it's place and turned out perfect. Thank you.

Seems to work fine for building up nut slots. Time will tell I guess.
