gotoh nut on a superwizard neck

Hi,

I have a rg570 with a superwizard neck. Im replacing the badly worn edge trem with a gotoh. The nut is also in pretty bad shape, and im going from black hardware to chrome, so im replacing the nut as well.

From what ive read, the super wizard necks have a 430mm radius. The gotoh 43mm bottom mount nut (GHL-1) has a radius of 400mm. Will it be close enough? If anyone has done it, is it noticeable at all?

I haven't tried it but most people I've talked to recommend against it. The consensus seems to be in favor of replacing it with another Ibanez nut made for the guitar instead of using the supplied Gotoh nut.

Thanks Gideond, I had actually just read the same suggestion in an older thread. If anyone else is in the same boat ibanezrules has 43mm japanese nuts for $50, and korean ones for $30. I found a post from Rich saying they're the same size, but the japanese ones are of higher quality.

Re: gotoh nut on a superwizard neck

Gotoh's 43mm is an Ibanez OEM Top-Lok III in different packaging, it's exactly the same nut. The markings on the bottom, radius is the same and everything, which means the OEM nuts aren't 430mm.



One of these is a Gotoh, one is an Ibanez MIJ OEM off a 90's 570, and one is Ibanez MIJ from Rich.
