Pressure pad sizes

One of my guitars has chrome pressure pads and i went to switch them back to the original black. I had an extra set of black ones laying around and was surprised to find they didn't fit (too big). After looking more closely i found the chrome ones were a little shorter but equally as wide as the black ones i have. I take it these pads came in different sizes? The guitar that needs the smaller pads is 540p which has a 45mm nut.

Re: Pressure pad sizes

For that nut you use the outside pads from a 7 string, 2TL22TB. Yowza, those got really expensive!

Thanks. Seems they're discontinued too, i may have difficulty even getting them. I wonder if there are any other options (after market or something)

Rich says he has five. I'd try him before they're gone.
