Nut and fret questions.......

Here's the deal...

My dad was cool enough to buy me this awesome guitar for Christmas, it is a "Frankenstrat" relic that was put together by California luthier Roland Rist. (Has built guitars for several pro's)

He did a nice job with the relic job.

Its a nice guitar.

Here's the problem.

The guitar has a plastic nut for some reason.... and even Ernie Ball 9's seem really stiff, bends on this guitar with the 9's on, feel like my other strats with 11's.

The frets are the Dunlop 6100's.... oh good lord I hate jumbo frets!!
They literally tear my hands up.... I can't see why anyone would want 6100's.....

Maybe I am too use to vintage strats and Les Paul's??

Is there anything I can do to get this guitar where I like it??

I will be EXPECTED to play this guitar a lot. I have to get it more suitable to me!!!!
