    Are they just standard plastic, like others use, or are they better?

    I'm not sure, but there's a rumor that Jeffrey Dahmer worked for them at one time.

    I don't know for sure if PRS has there nuts made by Graph Tech, but it seems possible, even though there name isn't on the list of manufacturer's on the Graph Tech website. If it is made by Graph Tech, then it's not graphite at all. It's a chemically grafted polymer called boron polytrinate claiming to have 15% more sustain than steel. It is then impregnated with teflon, which is 500 times more slippery than graphite. Needless to say, if you break a PRS nut and want something self-lubricating, get a Graph Tech replacement.

    Speaking of which, does anyone know which Trem-Nut part is the correct replacement? Graphtech no longer lists the radius of curvature for pre-slotted nuts.
