94 Jem 555 locking nut questing help

I’m trying to replace the hardware of my 94 Korean 555 but there’s no information On any spec sheet I can find that tells what size the locking nuts are? I see 43mm for RG and Japan guitars... is it the same? What are the numbers (43mm 15mm) I should look for to replace these to match the size of my old ones? Is it Floyd that’s on it? Gotoh? Ibanez? Anyone know the tuner size too?

43mm locknut, 17" radius fretboard, LoTRS2 tremolo, Gotoh style tuners M10 135.

However in your situation your top priority should be replacing the tremolo with a quality unit, tuners don't matter and the locknut either works or it doesn't.

Thanks man, I found a site that has lo pros and edge and edge pro for under $250 new.. just have to figure out if all those will drop in without modifying the cavity?

The cavity on the Jem is huge due to the lions claw rout, any of them should fit easily, however you will need to bore out the stud anchor holes if you want to use the locking studs supplied with the Edge/Lopro.
