FloridaGull, I can't speak for Ibanez, and don't quote me on this, but IIRC, the Corts actually have a 1.735 or 1.74" nut width to be technically accurate as listed on their site at 44mm. Not that a 10 thou diff is going to be noticeable to most. But I remember measuring a couple because I was actually able to A/B a couple of Corts side by side with a Cole Clark and Alavarez. I did notice the Cort seemed to be eeeeever so slightly thinner, but again, not that most would notice. Just being persnickity here. lol.
I was going to site their website, but I just checked. They no longer list their nut widths at 44mm (which is 1.735"). They now list them at 45mm; a full 1.75". So I guess they changed that due to popular demand. Nice. Another true 1.75" nut width affordable option.
===================================== One Alvarez in the hand is worth two Taylors and a Martin in the guitar store!
