  1. Once a string spacing is set, can it be changed?

    String spacing is determined by your nut and bridge saddles with the fretboard width being the limiting factor. Many bridge saddles are adjustable. I have never seen or heard of a nut being adjustable for spacing. To alter the spacing you generally would have to replace the nut. If you can be more specific about what your goal is, why, and the specific makes involved it will be much easier to answer your question accuratly. General questions will elicit general responses...................No spacing is not permanent........yes there are change it may be more trouble than it is worth, or you are willing to tackle.:D

    plus it seems that it would be pretty limited by the width of your fretboard. Atleast if you were going larger.
