Are there any affordable ($600 or less) solid or semi-hollow 6-string electric guitars that come with a 1.75 inch nut width? Thanks in advance for any help!

I seem to remember playing a MIM Tele that had a 1 3/4" nut. Granted, I could be mistaken, but if memory serves me right...

While I certainly haven't played every Fender out there, all the Fenders (Strats and Teles) I've played have a 43 mm (1 11/16") nut width or less (down to 42 mm).  I would suggest looking elsewhere at least to start.

I've heard you can get Fender-compatible 1.75-inch nut necks from Warmoth. If I can slap one on an inexpensive Tele or Strat body I could be all set. Such adventures are not in the budget right now, we shall see...

You still have to deal with the string spacing at the bridge which is usually only 2"-2 1/8" on an electric.
