Wide neck steel string guitars

Posted by Matt on Thu, 06/28/01 - 13:39:10.

Hi....I am looking to know if someone makes a wide neck acoustic guitar? I have pretty big fingers and mute out strings easy on a standard guitar. So maybe does a classical guitar come with steel strings? Please help so I can start playing better. Thanks Matt

I have the same problem...but I found an electric solution: I took a 7 string guitar with a 2" neck at the nut and installed a 12 string nut. I then changed the bridge from 7 to 6 strings. took a little doing...for a first try it doesn't look bad and it plays well. Another option that I am considering for acoustic play is to change strings on a 12 string and just install 6 good Elixir strings. It would work fine and you've got six extra winders

Takamine makes a wideneck steel string guitar. It is basically a beefed up classical guitar. The model is EAN30C and can be found at the Guitarwarehouse for arounf $700. Which was the lowest price I could find on the net. Goodluck.
