    Yeah. That is pretty wide for a soprano and if I were in the market I'd consider that a major selling point.

    FWIW the kiwaya eco series sops (KS-5 and I think KS-1 also) have that width nut. I'm sure there are some others brands that do too but Im not sure which.

    That width makes for a super nice playing soprano. I was always astounded by how roomy the fretboard on my ks5 felt even way up the neck. That little bit of extra space makes a massive difference on a soprano fretboard.

    I'll have to check one of these out some day.
