Universe FR nut lock

Hey guys,
My older brother has a 90 or 91 Universe UV7BK. He hasn't been using it for months. I, however, wanted to play it so I began getting ready to restring it. Unfortunately, the nut pad for the low B and E string was missing. I couldn't find it, so I took a pad from a nut I had lying around that had been on an 89 RG570 that is a project guitar of mine, but it didn't fit! It seemed to be too long from the headstock side to the body side, the length of the string. I took a look at the high b and e pad to try and get an idea of what was going on. It looked like that one had been ground down on the sides where my RG pad was too long. Does anyone know what the deal is? Thanks.
Galen

As you already know, the pads are smaller. You can grind the North/South sides of a regular pad and it'll work.

Or you can contact a dealer in order to get an original replacement pad!

Any available from Cottam Guitars, Rich?
If you happen to know the part number, I may look for it here in Portugal.
