Thread Name: Looking for a beautiful guitar
Subject: RE: Looking for a beautiful guitar
I had my Collings 000 made with a 1 11/16" nut width, which is narrower than the standard. I had this done because all of my other guitars are 1 11/16" (except for my banjo-guitar) and I like to cross-pick (not on my banjo-guitar) which for me demands consistency across my guitars. So Noah, perhaps I am lucky to have avoided the pain you endured. If you're serious about getting a Collings 000, I seriously recommend that you have a custom width neck built to your specifications. I couldn't be happier with mine.
