Well, I have an old charvel guitar with a Floyd on it, but, it is messed up, and I need to order a new one. So, which way do I measure nut width in order to tell which to order?

I'm not sure, see, the problem is, the guitar was given to me by my uncle, so I dont' really know much about it. It's 24 frets though.
snap some pics on the FR, give out details about your guitar, model name etc etc and maybe i can help.
