A pair of locking nuts that increase sustain, warmth, and clarity.

Washington Crossing, PA (October 5, 2016) -- FU-Tone.com is proud to bring you this revolutionary new locking nut. At FU-Tone we have always loved the sound of a brass nut upgrade on Strats and Les Pauls. Traditional brass is an inherently soft material and not the best choice for locking nut based on the rigorous job it needs to do. After experimenting with several different alloys, we finally found a version of Naval brass with the ideal density for securely locking the strings in place while delivering the sound of the classic brass nut!

Titanium locking nuts provides the ultimate in strength and accuracy while increasing sustain, warmth, and clarity.

FU-Tone offers both Naval Brass and Titanium locking nuts in 1 5/8” (R2) and 1 11/16” (R3)

Retail Price: $259.00 Naval Brass / $269.00 Titanium

Johnny Marr’s latest LP spans influences from New Order to the Staple Singers while staying rooted in his clockwork timing and copious talents as arranger and melodicist.

When the great Ronnie Spector of the Ronettes passed away earlier this year, I thought a lot about Johnny Marr. Marr was moved deeply by the girl groups of the ’60s—their positivity, energy, and the convergence of ecstasy and melancholy in the music. He was even fired up by the audaciousness of their style: The impressive beehive hairdo worn by Spector’s bandmate Estelle Bennett famously inspired the jet-black pile Marr wore at the height of Smiths fame.
