    cool! Sounds like you need to sell it and buy a different guitar? At least that's a strong possibility.
    But if you like narrow necks, and me too, it's not easy to find an archtop like that. I'd save money and get a vintage Guild from the 50's 60's, or 70's. That's what I did. They're not crazy expensive anyway.

    It must be newer because it has a 1-11/16" nut width. I have an SOS compensated shim on it as well. The guitar is fine for my purposes. I am not an expert on Korean builds or Korean factories, but like I said, it is everything as good as a comparable Peerless. In some ways it is better - three piece neck versus a Peerless scarf joint, light weight open Grover tuners versus sealed Pings or some such, etc. And after all, I am not a professional musician, so I will be a student all my life. I am good with that.
