"I'm wondering which Walden you are talking about - the O model (Orchestra Model)? If so, the O550 (solid spruce top, lam sapele back and sides) has a 1 11/16" nut width - but a 25.5 inch scale. The higher-series O model - the…"
"Mike I -
For different (significantly so) reasons than yours, I have played both the Baby Taylor and their GS Mini. Of the two, the GS Mini has by far the most "real guitar" sound, to my ear. Neither was suitable for me, since…"
"Ok - if you consider a slope shoulder guitar to be approximately a dreadnought, Recording King makes 3 slope-shoulder models with a 24.75" scale, and a 1 11/16" nut:
The RAJ-16, -26, and -27 - here are…"

Can you tell us why you're wanting a neck that short? There are quite a few "parlor size" guitars with necks shorter than 25", and both Seagull and Walden have some nice, full-sounding instruments with necks in that…"
"Well.....I build very small (17" scale) travel / alto guitars. Though small....they don't sound "small" at all. I do them in steel and nylon string versions. If you're curious....send me an email at…"
"The Voyage Air guitars are my personal choice in a travel guitar - my VAOM-06 is VERY full sounding. But, it is a full size guitar with a standard scale length neck. I too prefer short scale guitars, but I find the tone disappointing in the…"
