  • PRS nut width

    I'm looking to get a new guitar, preferably with a wide neck for my fat fingertips.... The widest I've seen so far are Carvin, with 1.71", but PRS doesn't list their specs in that respect. So... PRS owners, what width?

    Which one, i think they vary, though i may be wrong. I know they have several neck profiles, but that might just be radius and mass.

    My tremonti is 1 11/16"

          Depends on whether 1/32" is important to you!

              In that case you'd probably be interested in the 1 43/64 models sir!

                  The Wide Fat PRS neck is pretty darn wide. But I like em that way.

                  Ibanez also makes a wide board. But thinner neck.

                        I too have the big finger issue and like a wide board. One suggestion is that new fernandez signiture ravelle(sp.). It's the one done for the guy that plays with slash. I read a review in one of the guitar players that listed the nut width at 1 3/4. You don't see that much, unless you go to jazz guitars or order the next from warmoth. Heck the warmoth's have strat replacement nexts that go as wide as 1 7/8ths.

                        We need MORE wide necked guitars.

                              No I've just got the Soapbar. I was planning on buying the tremonti and then decided I prefered the double cut. My brain wasn't engaged when i wrote that, ignore me
