Topic: NGD - Wechter TO8442
Due to ongoing arthritis problems, I'm finding it harder to play guitars with narrow nut widths so I'm making changes and going to wider necks. My Martin 000-16srgt and Blueridge BR-63A have 1-3/4" nuts and are still my performing guitars. I have an old Recording King ROS-16 with a 1-13/16" nut width that I use as my campfire/river bank guitar. Zurf is planning on buying my Ohio Valley acoustic (he's already named it Olivia) which has a 1-11/16" nut and I plan to sell my Sigma DM-3 (also 1-11/16 nut).
Yesterday I bought a Wechter TO8442 from a buddy. It's a 000 size body, 12-fret slot-head with a 1-7/8 nut and I got for less than 1/3 of original price. I just put new strings on her and wow! Sounds great and easy for my big ol' arthritic paws to play notes and chords without having to be real precise to avoid deadening adjacent strings. I plan to install a K K mini pickup for the couple times a month I play at venues that require "plugging in".
I'm no good at posting pics so here's a link to follow if you're interested in in how she "looks":
