RGT42BP help.

Got a used one of them.

Having a few problems with the locknut and am considering my options. (I used to be a luthier up until about 5 years ago so no stranger to setups, etc).

The locknut bolt thread on the bass-side of the locknut seems to be stripped as the screw does not appear to catch the thread when the strings are loaded on (they're only 9's).

So here is the question.

Where can I get a new locknut from in the UK?

Is there any way of making this one work well (permenant) - I'm assuming not.

Will a 43mm locknut from an old OFR work just as well?

Is the tremolo on this axe directly replacable with a decent unit, i.e. a Schaller or an OFR?

Many thanks for help in advance.

Re: RGT42BP help.

Is the quality of hardware on these guitars fairly sketchy? I only ask because I can solve the problem by buying another nut meant for that guitar. OK its $60, but if it fixes it then fine. But am I to expect this one to at some point strip out like this one did?
