    A 12 fret D hole typically has a wider neck than the 14 fret (D or oval hole) guitars. AJL guitars are built this way:

    12 fret D hole neck: 48 mm wide at the nut

    14 fret D or oval hole: 45 mm wide at the nut

    thanks for reply

    my budget is 1000 $ therefore I can forget about AJL guitars

    I discovered that Gitane DG 320 has got 14 frets and neck width is 1 3/4

    I only mentioned AJL because I think he uses a fairly standard dimension.

    My '92 Dupont d-hole has a neck that's the same width as a 14-fret, but I have never seen another one quite like it. I'm surprised that more makers haven't explored that idea.
    I've never been a guitar player, but I've played one on stage.

    Gitane D500 has a wider neck. 1-7/8" vs the 1-3/4" of the DG320. It's not quite as wide as a classical guitar (2"), but it isn't far off. That should be in your budget too
