    I think you should hold off on selling the Taylor GS Mini Gerry @GerryB56 , and I’ll tell you why. I finger pick and almost all of my guitars have the 1 5/8ths inch nut. It has nothing to do with your fingers, either. It’s just practice. You’re a long way from having enough skill and experience to say you can’t finger pick on the neck width. It’s way more versatile than the wide, classical neck. I have a nylon string guitar with a narrower neck. They are hard to find, but they are better for those of us who play a wider range of music genres. Chord structures are hard on the wider neck and you are pretty much forced to hold the guitar in the classical position. There’s no strap, or standing up or holding the guitar in a more horizontal position. But, it’s your guitar journey. I’ve seen people who play all sorts of stuff on a classical. Though that’s more rare than seeing people play classical stuff on an electric with a very thin neck.

    Anyway, it’s your call. I just know that I have let go of guitars that I didn’t need to let go.
