I am assuming that the nut is an 8mm. if so get one here:

Hopefully someone else can chime in and confirm the nut size.

Thanks for the link

I have an 8mm adjuster (it looks like a pipe) but it's a bit too small for the guitar.

Huh, weird, maybe try a small 9mm socket, I don't believe it would be American but 5/16" = 7.9mm and the next common size would be 3/8" = 9.5mm

I'd say try a 9mm socket as well, though just be careful with it.

FWIW: If you haven't got one, go to your local hardware/DIY shop/store and find a "T" bar socket set, with sockets. They usually range from about 6mm to 10mm, and are very handy to have around the place.
