As far as I know, G&L does offer two necks that have string spacing wider than 1 5/8". I think they are called Plus C (1 11/16" string spacing) and Wide C (1 3/4"). I wouldn't mind getting a Bluesboy but only if I could get one in that spec (and I don't feel like having to special order one). However, I've searched ebay and reverb and have yet to come across anyone selling a model with string spacing other than 1 5/8". I'm a bit surprised that G&L and their dealers don't feel there's enough demand to produce Bluesboys featuring something other than the narrow string spacing at the nut. Anyone know of any dealers/sellers that have the Bluesboy with the wider string spacing??
