So I wanna know the advantages of having the normal nut width of 43mm, and having your strings a little closer together with 41mm or 42mm. What advantages do the closer string give you? What advantages do the further away strings give? thanks

I know wider nut 1 3/4" is preferred on acoustics for fingerstyle, more room to dig in or something. I think it's mainly personal preference, I don't like bigger than 1 11/16 and prefer 1 5/8. I'm not sure why but I think it's because I learned on and did my first several years of guitar on a G & L with a very narrow nut.

Hey, groooovy! an excuse to post a pic of my S-500.
