    Why do fretboards narrow at the nut?

    I cant see a physics reason why the fretboard on virtually all stringed instruments (except possibly a classical guitar?) are narrower at the nut.

    Pono, sadly 45mm! I think the Romero is way put of my price range too. I find switching from a 38mm uke’s 4 strings to a 45mm ukes’s 6 strings too hard for the shapes especially. Fingerpicking would...

    Low C AND Low G on a tenor
