I have an 1687 Adamas I re-issue that I enjoy and is in mint condition. The more I get into finger picking, the more I like my wide necks better. I wonder if anyone has a 1689 Adamas (in like condition) they may be interested in trading? I know some people have had wide necks and had issues with the width. Anyway if anyone is interested let me know.

Mario, 1689 is quite rare bird, easier to find 1688 (I) or 1685 (II) and convert it down to 6-strings

e.g. https://reverb.com/item/33728308-adamas-by-ovation-1685-8-12-string-...

Best,

Alex

Alex idea is right, but... the stronger bracing and bridge from the 12-string is not for the best tone with 6-strings. I've done this with an old 12er woodbox and it sounded like grab.....
