Yeah, that nut width on the Martin tenors is a weird choice. I didn't realize it was because they were following old designs.
So, were nut widths on the vintage Martin tenors also 34mm? I've never played one, only the modern T1K.
Agreed, the 34mm nut width on the T1K is really a head scratcher to me. Both the S1 soprano and C1k concert ukes have wider nuts. I loved the T1K sound, but just couldn't adapt to that thin nut. Even modding the nut for a wider string spacing wouldn't gain much, there just wasn't enough room. Too bad.
Wait, you're saying the nut on the S1 sop and the C1K concert are WIDER than that on the T1K tenor??
