String Spacing at the nut

    I've a couple of Precisions.

    The one I prefer to play seems to have a smaller width between the outer edges of the (105) E and (45) G strings. What that means is that the there's a bit more "wood" between the outer edges and the strings and that the strings are closer together.

    String width (outer edges) at the nut 34mm vs 35.3 and 45.9mm vs 47.1 at the 12th.

    Anyone had the nut re-cut to change this? Anyone know what the widths should be (or point me to a template for 41.3mm neck Precisions)?

    The irony is that the one with the slightly wider strings width has a nominally narrower neck.
