I've always been kind of curious about maybe replacing the nut in my SG, since I'm always seeing stuff about how Yngwie has a brass nut, and then there's the earvana compensated nut, and I was wondering, is there any real difference in sound?

nah.. i replaced the nut on my guitar from bone to graphite, no difference in sound
but, it improved the sustain by a few seconds

it might change the sound of the open strings, but not much else otherwise
i changed the one in my squier to graphite,
biggest waste of time ever. haha

The biggest impact of a different nut is the ability to hold tune and sustain of open strings. Other than that, it's a waste of time and money.

graphite nuts help guitars with tremolo stay in tune better... but they don't really change sound much, maybe open strings

It just reduces friction so that the tuning will hold better. The USA Deluxe Strats have graphite nuts as well if you want to test out the capabilities of one.
