R43 Nut

i have a JEM 555 build 1994 in Korea. I want to change the Lo-TRS II Trem to a GOTOH GE1996 and i saw that my locking nut has heavy scratches on the frist 3 strings and so i want to change it too. The Nut is locked by two screws from the back of the neck and " R43 " is stamped in. I don`t know if my neck has a 400mm or 430mm radius.
And here are my questions:
Is there a sparepart that is compatible?
perhaps with better Quality?
Is the locking nut from the JEM7V compatible?

Thanks for your answer,

Re: R43 Nut

1994 has the JEM neck profile 430mm radius. 43mm width.

You'll need to check the spacing of the current nut if it matches the TopLok nut holes or fill/redrill and/or use the top mount screw version.
