I guess the title says it all. What nut width and string spacing are you using for tenor ukulele?

Most uke builders use the same spacing for all their uke, regardless of size. Because a Tenor uke has a bigger body than a soprano, does not mean the neck nut width is bigger, only the scale length. I use a nut width of 1 3/8" and a string spacing of about 3/8".

Mine are all 36mm wide unless someone asks for something different. Centre of strings are 4mm in from the edge of the nut, and equally divided from there using Ken Timms string divider gauge.
