@bgartist posted in my NBD thread about my SB5000 that Carvin has a nut with of 1.75” while my Pedulla is 1.875”. My old Lakland is 1.81”. This was an eye opener because I cannot imagine a bass playing more easily than my Carvin. The thing about the is despite of relatively narrow nut, the neck is very thin front to back while my Lakland was a fairly chunky C profile. My Pedulla has a neck profile that feels perfect to me too. It has that wide 1.875” nut with a wide and super thin neck. Sadowsky has the same 1.875” nut for five strings and a neck profile that feels identical to wide-spaced Pedullas. The Carvin, however, is making me challenge my assumptions. That narrow nut did not phase me at all. It plays as comfortably as my Pedulla. My guess is that I like the look of a wide nut, but the thing that really makes a bass most comfortable to me is the front to back thickness of the neck.
