I got an e-mail question about the width of the nut on my BBG5s, and I almost shot back a reply saying it was a standard 1-3/4 inch nut. I decided to go ahead and measure just to be sure. I found it was 1-7/16 wide at the string center, and 1-11/16 wide at the nut. It's narrower than I thought it would be, considering the width at the bridge is a hearty 3 inches. So I guess comfort for me is a narrowish nut and wide spacing at the bridge. So how about it guys? Lets measure those nuts!
