I'm pretty fussy about having bone on acoustic guitars and mandolins but care much less about electric instruments. Tusq is okay for me on electrics, but if I'm changing them I'll still choose bone. I've used a slightly softer horn (black) on nylon strung guitars and ukuleles in the past but not currently.

There can be exceptions, but generally bone is what I gravitate towards.
