The nut has very little to do with tone. As soon as you fret a note, the nut is out of the equation. The biggest reason for a bone nut is to reduce string binding and eliminate tuning problems.

Unless you are a purist or a classical guitarist, there are better materials out there than bone. I'm really digging Tusq, but if we put it on one of the classicals the cork sniffers won't even give it a second look so bone it is.
