    My Peavey bass (okay, stop snickering) needs a new nut, and the shop wants to put in a new one made out of bone. Peavey, however, is sending me a free replacement made out of teflon/graphite. Which one is better?

    I don't believe you'll see much difference in playability between the two.

    The teflon/graphite is a factory replacement and makes tuning a very little easier. I like to keep things as close to original equipment as possible.

    Both are good nuts.
