That's an Earvana compensated nut. The strings are all adjusted to have something closer to optimum scale length, so they're all a bit different. The g string slot is normal, they just gave is a slightly shorter length and therefore didn't take that chunk out of the nut.
That's interesting. Never actually seen an Earvana nut IRL. Looks weird as hell.

yup, as said, its an Earvana Compensated Nut. they're pretty standard for the LTD/ESP guitars.

they're supposed to look like that. it's jst to try and get intonation as close as possible.

and to Offworld, you wouldn't even notice it while you were playing. haha it's very minimal
