Nut Material

I need to change the nut on my Clifford Essex Professional. It currently has an ebony one but I'm not happy with the string spacing.

Would you replace with ebony or bone or perhaps something else?

Clifford Essex Professional or Weaver

Just wondering if anyone has An Essex Professional or a Weaver they'd like to sell.

Cheers.
