is there a way to tell the different between a plastic and bone nut/saddle? I have a feeling my nut and saddle might be bone material but I'm not sure.
take a good look at it. you should be able to tell if its plastic as its softer than bone. you should be able to make some kind of dent on the corners...
its kinda hard to explain. compare it to some other plastic items.

how much did you pay for the guitar? most guitars under $1000 probably have plastic. if it is $500 or less, most definately plastic. you can get a tusq saddle for about $10 and it is easy to replace the plastic one. a new nut may cost up to $60.
