I currently have a fender excell, but it has a tiny neck in width

I have huge hands and I cannot properly play chords with it

Now today I was in a used guitar shop and found an acoustic with a realy wide neck and bought it, and well I can play freebrid on that and I cant on electric

So I ask you are there any guitars that have pretty large spacing between each string for fat fingers

I beleive every one finds there one special guitar and I may have already but I would like an electric or even an electric acoustic that I could play

Any and all help is appreciated

Aren't jumbo fret guitars the ones you would have to look into? I thought the width is bigger on those, don't know for sure though. That jumbo fret thing can stand for something else, as I said... don't know for sure

they might be, thats why I asked for help

I will look into those because they just might be what I need

Jumbo frets are just that, big frets - the gaps between frets are no bigger.

You might be able to buy a 7 string, re-cut the nut and 6 string it. The only alternative I know of might be custom-made. What you need is wide and flat. I would find out what the largest neck-radius production guitar is. Sorry I don't have a recommendation.

ok, What I was actualy thinking was getting a realy cheap 6 string bass and switching the strings and then the gaps would be huge... maybe to huge?

well I will never know till I try

Try a Carvin Holdsworth? They're supposed to have big, wide necks.

Warmoth also apparently has huge necks (1 7/8 inch superwide?) for sale and they make all their necks allegedly to Fender standards; maybe you can buy a replacement neck from them to fit to the Fender you already have?

well I have found one for about $200 at A+R music, so all I gotta do is talk my mother into getting it for me

and if all else fails I can always put the bass strings back on and play with that

What the hell? You can't put guitar strings on a bass, the neck will have so much backbow you won't be able to play.

^This is a good idea.
As for the 7-string idea, you could re-cut the nut to fit six strings, but what would you do about the bridge? And the pickup polepieces would not be centered under the strings.

^Very true. You would be better off building a guitar from scratch. Do they make 7 string blade pickups? Maybe a custom-made wrap-around tailpiece ala Gibson Melody Maker.
