3 Years Later, Return to Stock :: 1960's Goya Classical

This was an experiment to make a 2" wide neck play like a 1 3/4" by radically adjusting the nut spacing.  You can check out the original blog post, Small Hands, Big Necks from 2012.  The player decided to replace the modified nut (pictured above) with the original.  It is reasons like this that I always return anything that I remove from a client's instrument.

Fraulini Fenezia :: new bone nut to adjust string spacing

Fraulini Fenezia :: new bone nut to adjust string spacing.  The player found that the high E string was too close to the edge of the fingerboard and would sometimes pull the string off of the board.  The new nut has an extra 1/16” of space from the edge, making this 1 3/4” wide neck feel like it has the spacing of a 1 11/16” nut - an added bonus to the player.
