Call it as you like - neck width, fretboard width, bridge string spacing, nut width etc. The thing is that I have big hands. I like metal so Ibanez is always recommended to me by the people I talk with. But the same people, when I tell them I have big hands, say that it'd be better for me to buy something with a wider neck. As I see on producer's sites, almost any Ibanez is 45mm on the nut and Fenders are like 47.6mm. I see that Fenders are 69mm on the last fret while the Ibanez is like 68.8-68.9 or something. Accurate or inaccurate, these differences of a few millimeters I wrote above, at least in my mind, do not seem to make such a difference as folks say. I mean, how could 1 mm more or less affect your playing? Please tell me if I'm wrong, if I would really need a wider neck for my long hands and if my info written above is accurate. Thanks in advance!
