Thread Name: Nylon Strings
Subject: RE: Nylon Strings
For some reason, a number of the manufacterers are making their instruments with a 1 7/8 inch "nut width,"--Taylor included-- making the case that the narrower width would help the musician make the transition to steel strings.
This seems counter-productive to me. First it assumes that the individual would want to switch to steel strings, and it would seem to compromise the classical design of the nylon stringed guitar.
There must be something I'm missing.
