Ebony is about as close as you are going to get i think.

Or if you know an experienced luthier that can work well with bone then ask him if he could make you one.

Minor correction: That nut is made of ebanol, not ebony. Ebanol is a synthetic material made of layers of newsprint-quality paper held together with resin and stained black.

Ebony is wood. Ebonal is not.

Ebonal (or Ebonol) is a trade name for phenolic, a laminated plastic sheet. It's mostly resin, with paper, fabric, glass fiber or other materials in it to reinforce it. It's harder and more stable than wood, and is used by a few high-end manufacturers for fretboards. In the past it was also used on lower-priced instruments as an alternative to ebony or rosewood.

Thank you very much. It's perfect to me.

Question: Can you recomend to me a fixed bridge to this neck? I am building a Custom JEM and I would like to install a fixed bridge, but I don't know what can I put? Can you help me?

Look at product number SB_5115-010.

EKG (banner up above, www.ekgguitars.com) can convert floating tremolo routs to fixed bridge routs. That is the fixed bridge they rout for i think.
