Red face Metal nut for fixed bridge RG neck.

Does anyone know where we can get our hands on metal nuts for the RG necks without the locking nuts, and just the plastic like nuts installed?

Or perhaps brass? but brass wouldn't match the frets...

Brass nuts sound great--not a big deal if it doesn't match the frets.
You can find them in many luthier supply websites like LMI.
