Electric Guitar with Wide Neck?

by kevin

Are there any electric guitars with wider fretboards, if so then what kind?


Hi, Kevin--

The widest necks are on Paul Reed Smith wide neck guitar. You can choose from a wide fat neck or a wide thin neck configuration. These guitars are excellent but tend to be a little pricey.

Another option would be to buy a neck that you like and have it bolted on to your guitar.

Best Wishes,

Wide nut for Epiphone G400
by: Anonymous

Graph Tech has a nut for the Epihone G400 that has a string spacing of 1-1/2" E to e, as opposed to the standard 1-38" spacing. PN PT-6234-00. This helped me a lot.

Wide Neck Zarley Guitars

Zarley guitars offer many wide neck versions. 1-7/8 to 2 inches wide at nut. Check out their website to see what they have in stock. Reasonably priced too.

Wide Neck Guitar for Non-Millionaires
by: Hooper

Rondo Music's Agile guitar line offers several guitars with 1¾" nut-widths... most of them are LP clones, but they offer a few other models as well. I ordered an ES-335 clone with the wide neck just two days ago.

PRS wide necks?? Not so!
by: Anonymous

I checked out their website and the "wide" neck is actually only 1 11/16" (nut width). This is the standard nut width for just about every electric guitar out there.

They should have called it PRS Regular neck and their "regular" necks Tiny. It seems it is very difficult to find a wide neck on a steel string. I guess that is why I hear so many bassists say their fingers were too thick to play guitar so they took up the bass. Such a shame manufacturers haven't woken up to this.

1 15/16" would be good. I'd even settle for a 1 7/8". But try to find one of those!
