What are the sound effects or advantages of the material at nut: bone, brass, ebony?
Not sure, but it since it applies to open strings, I like a zero fret where the nut doesn't matter sound wise. That way the open string sounds as close as possible to the fretted strings. On fretless, I like it if the nut is the same material as the fingerboard.
Is it purely esthetic or it makes a sound difference on a fretless?
Well on fretless I might be over thinking it, but I certainly wouldn't want a big fat brass nut on a fretless.
