Subject: RE: Best Guitar for UK folk club?
"the total width of the nut is 4.2cm
from the middle of the 6th string to the middle of the first slot seems to be 3.8cm
4.2 cm, or 42 mm, is 1-5/8" which is the same as my Strat's nut-width - a bit narrow for an acoustic guitar. The spec on Guitar.co.uk website says 43 mm, which is the more usual width for an acoustic guitar of 1-11/16", so I think your measurement might be a millimetre off.
That string-spread of 38 mm matches the spread on my Martin HD-28V which has a 43 mm (1-11/16") nut-width.
So the Paramount seems to have a bog-standard 43 mm nut and 38 mm spread.
I think! ;-)
