Good match for Jackson DX10, but 1mm too tall

      Comments about Floyd Rose Original Series Locking Nut R-3:

      Mounted in 2003 Jackson DX10 reverse headstock, jumbo frets. Factory frets were excessively beveled, OEM Jackson BM43 (R4 string spacing) nut put 1st and 6th too close to edge, accompanying annoying sound at slightest slip up. Needed narrower spacing. R3 is still slightly wider than average strat, but was 1mm narrower string spacing than the BM43. Outside 1 11/16 spacing is perfect fit. But nut itself is 1mm taller, and this is a thin neck. Rather than mill nut shelf (and have to pay a luthier, there is also fear of a cracking headstock) used a belt sander and flat file to take off 1mm from the nut. When "Made in Germany" was filed away it was perfect. Micrometer essential, otherwise hand tools and patience. Belt sander saves time but be careful to keep it level. Clamp file or sander to bench and move nut across it to stay flat. Lot of work but worth it. This is only Floyd nut at 12" radius, a match for the Jackson compound radius 12/16 neck. Nut is top mounted. Reverse headstock tuner mounting adds lateral stress , tending to push nut sideways. Original screws were .4mm or so less diameter than supplied screws, first I used the original screws. The lateral push put 6th string near a mm too close to edge. Studied original drilling and saw it was .25mm or so off in same direction. Switched to supplied Floyd screws, (pilot holes already there) better fit in nut and 6th string is good, better to have the .25mm space for 1st string anyway. FANTASTIC! saved the guitar, no refret necessary!

      Comments about Floyd Rose Original Series Locking Nut R-3:

      If you are playing a guitar with a Floyd Rose Tremolo, this is an essential part. This particular string retainer nut is for a 1.6875" nut width, so, be sure to measure the nut width before ordering. The R-3 is very functional. It helps to keep the guitar in tune, as well as providing some safety, in case a string should break. It was designed to be an intregal part of the Floyd Rose Tremolo System, and should not be overlooked, if a guitar modification is being made. The down side is the cost of the installation, by a qualified technician.
