Want to recommend a guitar brand to a friend that's just starting out with a wider than average nut. I was think PRS but then drew a blank. I know my Eclipse is extremely tight so that's a no go. Any suggestions ?

Thanks
GUITARS:
PRS Custom 24 (Black Slate 10 top w/birds)
ESP E-II Horizon NT-III (RDB)
ESP Eclipse II - Snow White

AMPS:
Mesa Rectoverb combo

Gibson Flying V's have a really wide neck and they're not obnoxiously thin like an Ibanez Wizard. That being said, if you can tolerate the ridiculously thin Ibanez necks they have a pretty wide neck across the whole brand. Some models don't obviously, but the majority do.

what do you mean by "wider than average"? the two most common nut widths are normally 1 11/16" and 1 5/8" (in imperial measurements) or 43mm and 42mm (metric). Neither's really average, but if he'd be ok with 43mm, then there are loads of options. if he wants wider than that, there are a lot fewer options.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

My MiM telecasters neck feels wider than my gibson flying Vs neck.

Ibanez. I can't think of any other major brand - they all use 42mm for the most part. I know Ibanez uses 43mm.
