Thread Name: Best Guitar for UK folk club?
Subject: RE: Best Guitar for UK folk club?
It's amazing to me how much difference 1/16" makes in the nut width and the string spacing in the feel of a guitar. I traded off a wonderful-sounding Collings 00 because the 1 13/16" nut and 2 5/16" string spacing at the saddle made me feel like I was working too hard (the pronounced "V" neck had something to do with it as well) whereas a 1 11/16" nut feels too cramped for me with my fairly large hands. I've finally settled on 1 3/4" nut and 2 3/16" saddle spacing as my comfort zone.
