Is there a certain type of bone that you need to use to make a bone nut and saddle for an acoustic guitar?
Most guitar saddles and nuts are made of cow bone. The nature or origin of this cow bone can be from a number of different sources, but the majority of the time it is cow bone.
That being said, if you are into doing a little bit of experimentation, you could probably try any other type of bone and see what it looks like and sounds like.
Who knows, you might end up discovering something that works really well, and that creates a sound you really like.
