Default Cut away and neck width

If you convert the fractions to decimal you'll see the 1 11/16 is actually narrower, 1.6875 as opposed to 1 3/4 which is 1.75 (or this way: 1 3/4 is the same as 1 12/16).

So the neck width is narrower making it great for strumming and lead work and is why I prefer the Martin 00028 to the OM28, for example.

Hope this helps.
