Will a schaller floyd rose nut fit an MIJ Ibanez neck?

I've never tried to or even thought about this until my endless search for a simple under-mount screw for a 42mm MIJ nut is in need. So, my search continues, and upon doing so, I find that schaller makes one similar, however, I am not sure of the dimensions.

Here is a link to the product that I'm looking at. Mainly, I am only interested in the under-mount screws, rather than the nut, but if the nut works just as good as an MIJ R2 nut for your typical JS or JPM neck, I'll use it. I'd hate to waste the money on it, if it simply will not fit.

Anyone know?

I have the Gotoh one on one of my RG's. 42mm and it was a perfect fit.

You should be able to pick up a set of metric hex screws that will work perfectly in the nut you have........I think the bolts are the same on all Ibbys that are bottom mount. Have you tried home depot or lowes??

Re: Will a schaller floyd rose nut fit an MIJ Ibanez neck?

Thank you all for the info. I can only seem to locate the Gotoh 42mm with a 10" radius according to sites that I'm looking at, e.g. stewmac, warmoth. I'm seeing 43mm nuts in 15"

It's going to be difficult finding them in a 430mm (17" radius for the JPM fretboard).

Since I do have a nut on the neck now, which is a 42mm, I'll investigate just trying to find a under mounting screw that RGTFanatic mentioned. All I really need is the right sized mounting screw that is made for the nut. I really don't want to risk a non-perfect fit if you understand.

So, being that I got two votes for a Gotoh 42mm nut, perhaps that would do the job, but I'd hate to waste the cash on a nut that I won't use. Stewmac, also sells the mounting screw with washers, but a .39 cent screw, with $7 shipping is a bit bass-ackwards~ I'll try the hardware store. Or, maybe I'll try and hit up a local luthier for the mounting screw even from a MIJ Ibanez 43mm nut.

Thanks again.
Jason

You should have no trouble finding an under-mount screw at a fastener supply house. You'll need to take the nut with you to ensure the threads match, but you should be able to get out of this with VERY strong screws for less than a buck.
