ibanez RG locking nut

HI all,I'm changing to a Gotoh Floyd Rose on one of my RG's that has a 2000 RG550 AANJ neck on it. This trem comes with a choice of two 1-11/16 nuts. They are described as:
Nut#3 1-11/16 (42.90mm) 10" radius narrow
Nut#4 1-11/16 (42.90mm) 10" radius wide
Is anyone here familiar with this narrow/wide choice? Are they referring to string spacing? Which one would be the same as the original Ibanez nut? Thanks in advance for any help with this.

Why not just stick with the Ibanez locking nut? It's the right radius for the Ibanez neck (16").

Re: ibanez RG locking nut

There is a little more to this. This guitar is a RG520QS body(I want the mahogany body in this case) that I put a RG550 maple fretboard neck on. The neck has cosmo hardware. I want all black hardware. The Gotoh trem will be ordered in black and since it comes with the nut and string tree I planed on using them. I overlooked the fact that the neck is 16'' radius. Thanks for reminding me of that. There is no choice of a 16" nut with the trem deal so that plan is out. Never the less, I'm still interested in what they mean by narrow and wide on these nuts. I tell you what ,I've had a hard time finding information and parts for Gotoh Floyd Rose trems on the net.

Just get an Ibanez nut in black, far easier than trying to find and aftermarket one. Trust me, I tried that!

Re: ibanez RG locking nut

Ya,I agree and I have an Ibanez nut on it's way. Since the Gotoh trem comes with a nut I thought I might as well get the closest match to the Ibanez. Oh well, I'll **** the one I get with the trem.

Edit:Ha Ha, that auction site got censored!
