today i got a new guitar with a cheap chinese "floyd rose" off craigslist and one of the screw holes for the lock on the nut is stripped

anyways i need to replace the nut but its not mounted through the neck(the screws attaching the nut to the neck are on the top)

could i buy this nut and install it without causing damage(from the original screw holes)?
If you have any doubts, dowel in the holes, then redrill for the new screws.
