Chrome Nut for Ultra 540R Neck?

Anyone know what chrome locking nut I should use for my Ultra neck? According to the catalogs, the Ultra's had a 42MM nut but I'm not sure which one to order. Rich's site lists some 42's but they are for JS necks,

Thoughts?

Any help would be appreciated as I want to get my custom 540R done. Ordering a chrome Edge here from Rich and want to order together if possible.

Thanks

Rich would probably know the correct size.
I had the same problem when switching to chrome hardware.
What I did was using only the chrome pads from the chrome 43mm nut I had, leaving the original nut in place. This is how it looks.


and this is how the rest of the guitar looks:

Thats not a bad idea. It does not look bad on there but you do have a black headstock too, mine is the same color as the body (lighter blue) I think I would still notice it.

I like the look of the guitar though, it looks sharp with the chrome.

Well, now I am confused, the catalog page below states the Ultra neck is a 43MM width.

540R and JS models are 42mm nuts,neck profile is a separate thing and as above,a 24 fret ultra neck on an RG is 43mm,a 22 fret ultra neck on a 540R is 42mm.
