    I am very serious about getting some mammoth bone for nuts for my guitars.

    Does anyone know a reputable dealer I can get the blanks from online?

    I will be having these installed from a luthier in my home town and just want real mammoth ivory.

    Okay I have a feeling I'm about to ask a real stupid question... But nonethless, are these nuts from a real Wooly Mammoth? If not, feel free to laugh... I would too!

    Actually, yes, mase, they are.

    In siberia, there is a large amount of ivory from mammoths that are used in many crafts such as knife hilts, buttons, etc, the larger tusks fetch large sums of money.

    I have found a couple distributors so I should be good, I have a couple of friends from Russia and they have been contacting some people so I should get some info soon. If I find a good distributor, I'll be sure to post here to let folks know.
