As much as I’ve ogled Eastwood guitars for a good many years, I’ve stayed away as most of the neck specs on your guitars are (to my hands) a skimpy 1 5/8″. Having now owned and played many guitars, the most comfortable neck for me is what I’ve seen referred to as a “Soft-V” neck, which is deeper/thicker than the “shallow C” neck that electric guitars often have, but it’s not any wider. Another point regarding wide neck guitars that I think warrants a mention is: Wide necks are wonderful for playing fingerstyle. Just adding more space at the neck sides instead. Glad to see Eastwood recognizing the market for wider neck guitars as I really like them. Wonderful low action too. Hi, Is this guitar with the Nut spec of 2-1/8" currently available for Purchase ?
