Hi Ciosi,

Do you mean fossilised mammoth ivory?  I’m a bit out of touch with guitar paraphernalia, but I recall that being discussed some years ago.

Basically, denser material absorbs less energy than lighter material.  So a denser material should improve volume, tone, and sustain.  Most fossilised mammoth ivory will be more dense than most bone.  Though, it doesn’t always make a guitar sound better.

I think it’s worth a try if you can find some legitimate material.  🙂
