My advice is not to get hung-up on exact heights. It's a trial and error thing. You KNOW it's too high for you, so make gradual changes and play it a little, maybe sleep on it, and keep that up until you're comfortable. It really comes down to that. Tastes vary as much as hand size, musical genre, and playing style. I don't see any reason why you can't get it to where you are comfortable. My SS is my only current 7.25" radius of all my guitars (though I've had 7.25" before) and I find the SS neck and setup to be one of, if not the most comfortable of any of my guitars to play.
Agreed, I won't mess with it for awhile. I've only had it a week. It's not that I don't like it, just gonna take some getting used to. I'm also a humbucker guy at heart but these single coil pickups are sick cool. Really like their tones. In my PRS collection I've got 2 custom 24's, a 594, a Pauls guitar and a P Stock custom 22 with pattern thin. Alot of different necks here and they all work great so I'm sure my SS will settle in just fine. Just need some more time on er. I've also got some arthritis comin on and thru this forum and others most players with arthritis seem to like the chunkier necks like the 594 and their 50's les pauls. I had never thought of that but great info. Makes since. Thank you.
