Changing string/nut width

Recommended Posts

Here very soon I'm going to take my AJ in for a new setup. As some of you all know I'm a big AJ fan, but unfortunately I'm still struggling with the wide string spacing. I was wondering if it would be possible to bring it down to a 1 11/16???? I've had it since back in the winter so I've had plenty of time to get used to it, but I just can't get comfortable with it. It's the best sounding guitar I've ever owned and I'm not willing to give it up over the string spacing but I do want to remedy it if possible. Any of y'all have any experience with narrowing the nut width on a guit?? Any advice welcome

A luthier should be able to sort you out, man, I guess it would be far easier to narrow a string spacing at the nut than to widen it, you may have a little more room above the low E and below the top E, but at least you wont run off the board. Can't see why this wouldn't be an easy remedy for you.

 

all the best
