Wondering if this guitar has any issues I should know about, love so far what I have heard about it. Some people saying it has 2" neck (width) and that it's basically a classic guitar with steel strings, or of any of you know of any guitars close in relation with this one I would love to hear about them.

I have a 1966 F25, it has a 2"wide nut, 12 frets to the body. It is braced for steel strings
with an X brace. The saddle was strait across so it does not intonate very good for steel strings. I had the saddle slot filled then cut on an angle so the intonation is perfect now.

Mine is a very warm and has great volume for a 00 size body.

Awesome, how much can I expect to pay if I do find one of these bad boys?

These have a flat board so make sure that is to your liking. But the 2" nut is great especially considering the flippin' thin nut width Gibson went to on their other acoustics in 1965 which made the slim necks Gibson slapped ont heir guitars in the 1960s even skinnier.
