RG550 string pads
Hello, haven't posted here in a while but I recently purchased a 1991 left handed RG 550. It needs a little work to get going but I'm having a bit of trouble with the locking nut string pads.
I think older pads are shorter than Floyd's and newer Ibanez pads on the reissues, also looking at a nut listed on evil bay, there were some runs where the pads had a U shaped middle where the bolt fitted into the slot, is this correct? I would like to find a replacement for the pads but if it's to expensive I may just take the new pads to a bench grinder and wear about half a mm on the front and back to "fit" them into the nut slot.
Anyone else experience this problem on a restore?
