Default Any Wide String Spread at the Saddle on Rainsongs?

If I can sell a couple of wood bodies I might finally join the CF ownership group.

Does Rainsong make any 6-string guitars with a string spread at the saddle greater than 2-3/16" (the Al Petteway sig) ?
Nothing on the Rainsong website or ads, and past emails with Rainsong were not helpful. Elderly told me the newer Nashville/Vintage models were 2-5/32".

I know you can get 2-1/4" as standard from Emerald.

I prefer a neck with good depth, 1-3/4" nut minimum, and 2-5/16" or 2-3/8" string spread. I have fairly wide hands and play bare fingers - no picks or nails. I can handle narrower and low profile, but far prefer the deeper and wider configurations.

I guess I could get a 12 string and remove the octaves.

Thanks in advance for any info.
