    Hi PRS mavens—how does the DGT neck shape differ from the Pattern or Pattern Vintage shape? If anyone has width and depth measurements, that would be wonderful. Thanks!

    (Surely there’s a thread on this already, but the search tool won’t handle the term “DGT”!)

    Nut width is the same as Pattern Regular. Don’t have any measurements, but my DGT and S2 feel very close to each other. Difficult to say whether they are the same carve due to the larger frets on the DGT.

    Edit: Pattern definitely feels larger than the DGT carve.

    Ill look it up but I believe it starts life ( nut ) as a Standard ( Pattern Reg ) and goes to a Pattern ( wide fat ) so 1/32 more narrow at the nut

    This sounds right to me, as well. I know it is narrower, and kind of morphs from one carve to the other, but have no idea where. I just know I like the feel of it.
