Newbie question here. Im looking at purchasing a Floyd Rose system for my '02 strat, and I've noticed theres bunch of different types of nuts (R1 R2 R3 etc) and I have no idea what this is or which one Im supposed to have. Any help?
it all depends on the width of the neck at the nut.

warmoth has a good description.

Here's their chart;
R-2 = 1-5/8" Nut-Width

* R-3 = 1-11/16" Nut-Width Narrow

R-4 = 1-11/16" Nut-Width Wide

R-5 = 1-3/4" Nut-Width

*R3 = 1 11/16" Nut Width Narrow. Essentially, this nut is the 1 11/16" width, but the spread of the strings is pulled in resembling the spread found on a 1 5/8" nut.

So just measure your neck and find the one that fits. these measurements are for floyd original and gotoh nuts, so off brands *might* be different. Not necessarily though of course.
*insert witty statement here*
