Depends which Jaguar it is but most are B-width which is 1 5/8" or 41ish mm. If it has a 7.25" radius the bottom (and top) of the nut has to have a matching curve, whereas modern/CP/Squier style nuts are flat on the bottom and 9.5" on top.

You should measure your guitar but bottom line is its either going to be a "41mm" (1 5/8") or "43mm" (1 11/16") Fender nut, vintage reissue if it's a AV/Japanese one o'thems and modern style if it's anything else.

Apparently DEEZ NUTS (but I'm sure you saw them coming from a mile away)

Japanese, Made in Japan I believe, rather than Crafted, if that makes a difference. It might even be the other way round because I'm sat in work and don't pay attention to this shiiiiiiiiit.

Shouldn't make a difference. If it's a 62RI it'll take the curved bottom 1 5/8" nut... I don't know about the HH's necks, they're probably modern.
