    Nut Material?

    Given a Guild from 1985 with a nut that looks like this, what would you say it's made of?




    I would assume the saddle is the same materiel?

    1980s: [ X79 | X79-3 | 2x X80 | X100 | S270 | S281 | BHM1 ]
    1980s: [ S300AD | X82 | Detonator | Liberator Elite | NB | SF4 | D46 ]
    1990s: [ 2x S100 | X170 | X170T | SB602F | SF4,5 | BB | NB DX | X3000 | DV72 | BM01 ]
    2000s: [ SF3 | SF4 | BB-90 | X160R ]

    Older Taylor guitars have that same color nut and saddle - looks like they smoke a pack a day.

    Fossilized phlegm! Sounds amazing, and the fossilized stuff is gluten-additive-hormone and antibiotic free, free range too!

    I've been favoring coprolite recently, myself:

    Takes some working, but worth it in the end.

    Way off tune here but and old farmer gave me some excellent advice, when I was a young basketball coach, that served me well throughout a 40 year teaching and coaching career. It was going to have to be done--replacing my assistant coach that I inherited a year earlier when I accepted the job. And I quote the old farmer, "when you have to eat a turd, don't nibble."
