An old Locking MIJ nut in new prestige neck

Hi guys!
Is it possible to put an old Ibanez MIJ locking nut from the old production in a new 2009 prestige neck?
I don't have in home my old 550 and anymore and I'm not sure about the mounting holes spacing.
My new neck is top mounting but if the holes spacing is the same I would love to convert it to the old ones.
I would like for a favour someone to measure the mounting holes in mm.

Also the old prestiges nut with the strings retainer which is also with top mounting screws will be fine if the holes are the same as the new ones used in the current production.

Thank you!
Dimi

Won't work. New Prestige necks use a top mounted nut with screws that screw into the neck. Old nuts use through bolts.

Yeah, I know but if the holes are on the exact precise place I can mill them to fit the top mounting screws heads...?

Yes, the holes are in exactly the same place. I just checked by lining up an old nut and a new nut that I happen to have loose.
