Default Replacing the neck on a 40+ year old Gurian

Not the worst idea Ive ever had, but probably not the best either...

The nut on my 42 year old Gurian Jumbo Rosewood is a very thin 1 5/8. Like many, Ive grown accustomed to the generous 1 3/4 neck on my Martins.

How crazy would it be to have a new neck made with the more comfortable 1 3/4 nut? I really do love everything about this guitar. I can live with the skinny neck but just wondering.

Oh. I suspect that this would take a bit of Gurian knowledge as the neck is held to the body by a couple of ebony pins.

Thoughts? (Other than to tell me Im nuts.)
