hey guys i just have a quick question about fret boards, are they all same width on acoustic/electric guitars? because like when i play chord "D" my fingers touch other strings bc i guess my fingers kinda fattish =o. anyways because i been thinking about ripping off curent fret board and buying a bigger one, thanks a lot for help.

hey, if you recently begun playing you will get used to it and you will soon handle it well if you practice

yeah, it's not about the fretboard but more about knowing where specifically to put your fingers. a wider fretboard may feel better (i know my acoustic, with larger fretboard than my electric, feels significantly different) but it won't solve your problem.

Just practice properly, and you'll be able to make all the common chord shapes on a thin electric neck.

Unless you're some hideously deformed mutant, you shouldn't have to worry about how thick the neck is on a normal guitar.

yes it would work lawl, easily pray off the neck and then glue a different neck, there are so many guitar mods so please dont say it would not work if you dont know _____ (insert profanity here) but year i guess i just gota keep practising....

Unless you have a bolt-on, replacing the neck simply isn't practical. If you're having so much trouble with a simple D chord, your problem is most likely technique.
