2 inch nut width on acoustic steel string guitar

I've got a few Taylors with 1 3/4 inch nut width.  Am interested in looking at some 2 inch nut width steel strings.  I know about Steve Grimes' guitars, but they are way out of my price range.  Anyone know of the wider nut width in the $ 1,000 to $ 2,000 range?  


Thanks!  Curtis

Check out Seagulls have a 1.8" nut width in general, but check out the Artist series, in particular the Peppino D'Agostino version, which has a 1.9" nut width. In fact, if you check on Amazon, you'll find you can get one of these for $1,191.97. Special price with Q2 electronics! If I had the money, I'd buy it...
Good luck!
^^^^^^  What he said ... :-)  ^^^^^^^
I have a friend who has a Larrivee  Custom OM-05 with a 1 7/8 nut width.  It also has abalone around the top border and on the bridge wings.  He got it used from a private sale on the internet.  I don't remember exactly what he paid, but it was in your range.  It's a nice fingerstyle guitar, but a reach if you thumb over the neck.
There is a 2006 Larrivee SD-50E for sale at Wolfe Guitars in Jupiter, FL - 1.875" nut width, $1950. Website I'd go with the Peppino myself...

I build custom-made guitars and could make you a guitar with a 2" wide nut width in your price range. Please visit to get an idea of the different styles I build. The Jumbo size dreadnaught would be a good choice for a wide neck guitar. You can pick the materials you want and even get whatever string spread at the bridge you desire. Money back guarantee. You can email with any question
