A very unusual Zero-Nut situation

OK - I have a customer who wants his Gibson LP to have a Zero-Nut installed. Here's the issue - the guitar has been re-fretted with frets whose crown measures about .062 and there are no frets made that I know of that are taller than .058. Any ideas? Thanks ahead of time.

or you could just explain to him that retro-fitting a zero fret is a silly idea that won't accomplish anything.

if he's convinced that the metal "nut" will make some kind of tone or sustain difference, make him a regular brass nut.

I solved the mystery. I put an unwound "g" string under the zero fret, and filled the tiny space under the fret w/amber glue while under a clamp to solidify. It looks and works awesome - a nice playable distance from the zero to the first fret. MYSTERY SOLVED.
