    I have a Martin d-28. I thought the same thing, with plenty of practice reaching the strings will be second nature to me. Ha! My fingers never grew longer to adjust to the guitar and it’s still a pain to use. Just keep in mind It’s a combination of things. The width of the neck is one and the shape of the neck is another (I’m sure there are more). I tried out a Resonator guitar, the nut width was a good size but the shape of the neck made it impossible for me to fret! I go to a guitar store that has a return policy of 45 days. In 45 days I should know if it’s a comfortable guitar to use. I have 5 guitars. My Taylor GS mini (3/4 size) and Cordoba 1/2 size are my absolute favorites and a fraction of the cost of my Martin.
