    I just bought a neck off of ebay and the guy is saying the width of the neck at the nut is 1 13/16. Does that sound right? If so where can I get a nut that size. I've look at a few places and can't find one. Thanks

    How many strings is this neck made for?

    Just 4, that's why it doesn't sound right to me.

    Hmmm... you're right, that sounds kinda odd. I'd wait and see what the dimension really is before buying a nut for it.
