I own a Norman B18 (cedar top) and I am loving it more every day. I replaced the nut with another TUSQ nut
Q-6116-00. It is still 1 11/16 width but has the string spacing slightly wider. The strings are better spaced now. Maybe the nut that was on there was not the factory nut, because the strings were were too far from the edges of the fretboard and spaced too tightly. Now it is perfect.
It is about 2 years young and it is really opening up. I am getting crisp defined highs and strong boomy lows. Projection is awesome. I love the matte finish, allows the guitar to really speak. I use light PB's 10-53. I love PB strings in general (I'll leave that for another post).
I also love the cedar tops. I looked at a S&P folk with a cedar top and almost bought it. I plan to pick up a folk (in the godin family) in the near future - something with a 1 3/4 inch neck width.
and yes, my guitar is personalized...
