Hi

As I cannot help myself and take Ovations out of my mind, I have made the decision of buying a second one. Having already a nylon strung 1613 I'd like to get a steel string O. 

I have pretty big hands so would like to know which models have a larger than normal fretboard (I've read that Ovation necks are quite narrow, almost electric like). What US made model would you suggest? A vintage one from 70s or 80s would add to the cool factor. Possibly without cutaway. 

Thanks.

Some Ovations have wider necks.
You already have a Nylon string with a wide neck.
Ovation also makes the Folklore, which has a 1-7/8" nut width, with Steel Strings.
