Considering sending a guitar with a Wide-Fat neck profile to the PTC for a reshape to Pattern Reg or DGT, has anyone had a similar process done and what were your thoughts? Do they even offer this service? Thanks!

MA Pete had that done to one of his former TED DC245s and he said they did a terrific job.

Unfortunately, they do not offer a neck enlargement service.:(

Compared to a Wide-Fat, the Pattern Regular has a slightly narrower nut, and so it might be more of a job, compared to just carving the thickness down a bit.

right - the regular has a slightly "V" that i carved also to the RW neck.
just a bit less to remain the "full hand" feeling.
most important for me was to round the fretboard edges and shoulders.
afterwards i smoothed the frets again.
if you just sand it down you'll receive a W/T.
