LSR Roller nut install for Stratocaster

My LSR nut needs replacement on a Strat ? Would anyone like to recommend a place? I could remove the neck and send it with the new Fender LSR roller nut parts.

I'm curious why it needs replacement? They're essentially just ball bearings - that are fixed - they're don't really roll. The idea is to have minimal contact area. The only reason to change them might be that they've become damaged which is difficult - or the retaining widget is bent and they fall out. Replacing one should only take a small screw driver if you already have one installed and replacing it with the same LSR. DIY

My original nut needs replacement...better?

I went and did it myself. Yall too late. I busted out a file and #51 drill bit. Hit the original broken bone nut out with a tappy-tappy hammer and punch. The one pilot was cocked and not square so the screw threads are chewed.

Still have some sharpie marker on the scribe lines.

The guitar was knocked over by a drunkard. The fret nut hit a table corner perfectly in the middle. There is a wood chunk missing above by the truss.

SAVED!

OK- Cool save ! I've replaced a standard nut with a roller and it took a little patience and a little widdling ( so to speak). I don't think I would do it to anything vintage or particularly high end. Kind of a one way street when removing fretboard.
