Aww... man!  You were at the Philly show today?  Why didn't you tell me?
I would have.. probably still stayed home, to be totally honest.

Nice looking guitar, but in my opinion, 12-strings on a 1-5'8" nut width neck is unnecessarily tight.

1-11/16”, actually. I can’t play 12vers under 1-3/4” myself, so I backed off doing a trade for this Proto 12.

Interesting.  I measured my Phantom 12 at 1-5/8", and I was interested in a Proto 12 that the seller measured at 1-5/8", and so I declined.

Maybe I didn’t read the copy correctly. Could a sworn it said 1-11/16”. I’m probably wrong.

Sellers say a lot of things that are not accurate.  When I bought the Phantom 12, the seller claimed that the nut width was a hair under 1-3/4", which is my bare minimum for 12-stringers as well, but when I received the guitar, the nut width measured only 1-5/8".  I sent him a picture to prove this to him, and he told me that I was holding the tape measure wrong.  (I was not!). By the way, I had someone else confirm this with an independent measurement.

Just for fun, here is the picture.

I didn’t go - I stayed in DC all weekend.  Picture courtesy of Kim Keller.

Why, is there something wrong with having to say hello to Kim? 🤭😉😄

No, I meant that I was happy I did not leave my house to not see Not Steve.  

Really I'm just happy to have not left my house.

I do believe that used to be mine. Crazy sorry I ever got rid of it, but at the time was thinning the herd and didn't think I'd need a 12ver again. Stupid, stupid man...

Wow, that Red 12 string with matching headstock was only going for $1499?  I hope something was wrong with it. That's great deal.
