I'm still in the intermediate foundation stage 1 working on barre chords and finally starting to see/hear improvement (a big thanks to Bootstrap!). I play a Seagull S6 Coastline Folk accoustic. It has a bit wider nut....1.8 inches. I was wondering how much easier will it to play barre chords on an electric or even if it is easier. I'm starting to look around and kind of like the Ephipone Les Paul ....I think it's the Black Beauty. Any thoughts?

I started the Intermediate Method recently and found the following helpful for barre chord practise.  Instead of trying to do as many one minute changes as possible I count 5 sets of 100 barre chords done as well as I can, interspersed with 4 sets of open chords, but these done with the 1 minute counter.  It takes about 15 minutes, but I think it is improving my technique.  I try to ensure the barre chords sound good and it seems to help with the clarity of the open chords without losing too much speed with them.
