    According to this article from the PRS support page
    https://www.prsguitars.com/support/article/neck_profiles
    the depth of the Pattern neck profile is 28/32", while the Pattern regular is 27/32". However the was a picture that was being shared around that stated the depth of the Pattern neck was that same a the Pattern Regular, 27/32".

    I always suspected that the PRS support had the correct dimensions, but I wanted to be 100% sure. So I measured it with a caliper and confirmed that PRS info is accurate. I got
    • 1st Fret: 0.8755"
    • 12th Fret: 0.9465".
    On my S2 Mira, which has a Pattern Regular neck I got 0.8439 on the 1st fret and 0.8441 on my S2 Singlcut.

    I know it's a small difference between Pattern and Pattern Regular, I know I'm nerding out, and I know I should just play the guitars, but once again PRS consistency and precision impressed me. This level of precision contributes to us being able to buy PRS guitars online knowing it'll be amazing.
