Good Day,

I have a RG5EX1 modified with a OFR. I replaced all the cosmo hardware awhile ago with all black. The nut I recieved is shorter than the neck width. I do not know what the size of my current nut is but its a probably a mm short. Basically its flush on the low side but ends at the binding of the high side. I am at work right now (yeah) and can not look at it.

I just need the correct width at the nut of the 3-pc wizard II neck with binding.



Thanks

Ibanez nuts are 43mm, it looks like the closest Floyd Rose nut is 42.90mm.

It might actually be better to just use an Ibanez nut. You should shoot Rich an e-mail from IbanezRules.com, he could probably answer your question better.

OFR nuts can also have a higher radius than your fretboard (250/350mm), leading to the center strings sitting too high, by the way. Like Hikaruzero said, might be better off getting an Ibanez nut.
