    Posted in the general discussion forum by accident.. Meant to post here. So...

    Looking to grab my first PRS and need some info on some neck shapes and dimensions. Played a couple PRSi at a buddy's house a few weeks back and have been GASing ever since. He's got a Santana model and a Custom with a Pattern neck. The Santana felt great as I like a chunky neck but the Pattern was cool too. How does the "Standard" profile compare to these?

    And does anyone have any caliper measurements of PRS necks? Like I said, I'm a chunkier neck kinda guy and as far as depth measurements the lowest I can go is around .83 at the 1st fret. Judging by the measurements on the PRS site I'm good with a Wide/Fat and Pattern but the Wide/Thin is too thin. Where does the Standard fit?

    Standard = Regular = Pattern Regular

    Pattern Regular is the same depth as Wide/Fat but narrower at the nut. The shoulders feel a bit different too, but not in a bad way (to my hands).
