    I wasn't sure where to post this.
    I'm thinking of installing the Fender roller nut but I can't fine the exact specs on it anywhere. Does anyone happen to know where I can find them? I looked at a bunch of different places and sites and can't find detailed info. I need L/W/H etc. Thanks.

    I don't have one anymore. But the LSR ones I installed on Strats fit great on the typical 1.65 nut width. They come with shims but all 3 I did came out perfect with string height too!

    LSR Roller Nut Prep
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    This ingenious nut uses ball bearings to ease string movement across the nut. When used in conjunction with locking tuning machines and moderate tremolo action, tuning issues are significantly reduced when compared to more conventional set-ups. The LSR Roller Nut is available in our Hardware section.

    The LSR nut is available on right-handed necks only. It is available for a 1-11/16" nut width only. It can be used with any straight fretboard radius between 9" to 11", or the Warmoth Compound Radius.

    Maximum string guage per slot:
    • 1st string - .024"
    • 2nd string - .028"
    • 3rd string - .034"
    • 4th string - .039"
    • 5th string - .048"
    • 6th string - .059"
    Please Note: Installation of the LSR nut requires widening the nut slot towards the first fret to 7/32". This makes switching back to a traditional nut challenging, so be certain you like the LSR nut before having a neck set-up for it.
