Is it Ok to do this? I have a Zion neck that I am going to get a new body for here soon. I would like to get rid of the floyd rose and go with a fixed bridge, however the nut is drilled through the neck like old school Ibanez guitars so I feel like it would be more trouble than it's worth to try to get a different nut on there. It should function just fine if I leave the locking mechanisms off right?

I have a retainer bar behind the nut. Keeps the strings from going anywhere I suppose

You can keep it on with no issues. However if you want a bit more control over string height and action, you can get ebanol replacement nuts that fit straight in and are brilliant. I've set a few of them up and they're awesome.

I wanted to go that route, but I have no tools for working on nuts and I know such a change would require a bit of tweaking to get adjusted correctly. I will probably do that later down the road, I just want to get this bitchin 90s Zion neck back on a body and playable ASAP.
