    The one in your hand is a tusq. Do you think you can tell the difference sonically?

    So far the one in my hand seems to have the distinct higher “plink” sound from being dropped on a hard surface so I think that will translate a little to the strings once it’s on.

    Visually I think it’s quite obvious.

    I’m trying to convince the people who “installed” it that they somehow put the stock nut back on and sent me the Tusq-xl separate.
