Hello, pretty straight forward question here. I bought this neck, a I want to built a fretless. Vintage Gibson NOS Maple EB /Triumph Bass Neck | eBay I'm in the process of choosing a body shape, (either EB or viola), and parts like bridge, tuners, pu,s etc. The nut width measures out to 1 3/4", is this wide enough for a 5 stringer? The other option I was considering was to somehow taper the neck down to a 1 1/2" nut and doing a 4 string. I just can't stand playing anything wider than a P bass neck, (I actually prefer J necks for a 4 string setup). Thanks.
