In trying to understand, so what may seem an odd question.

It looks to me that there is an optimal distance between strings and it would look to be around 1/2 an inch.

Would this be a sensible spacing for a three string MD?

My reason is I wish to keep the fingerboard to as small a width as I can and if this distance is good them a 32mm wide board would give 1/8 inch at each side and 1 inch across the 3 strings.

Ta in advance
