    Were Regular neck profiles available on mid-90s CE-22s?

    I have a 95 CE-22 with what feels like a Regular neck profile. Did PRS make them with this profile in the mid-90s? Thanks all!

    See PRS neck specs here: http://www.prsguitars.com/csc/neckprofiles.html. As far as I know, the Regular was also referred to as the "Standard" neck profile. This nut width sure feels narrower to me than a W/F or W/T.

    I want to say CE22's only came WF or WT, I could be wrong though.

    I always thought so too, but this CE22 I just received is definitely not 1 11/16 nut width, and the profile feels a little rounder like a Pattern Regular.

    Not sure how I feel about it. The seller told me he was positive it was a W/T.

    If its got a regular neck on it then its pretty rare, and badass. Its possible- they did make one offs in the 90s as well. Any photos? It might say something about it in the pickup cavities if it is a one off of some kind. What does it measure at the nut?

    From what I recall, CE22 was wide fat and CE24 was wide thin. But that was later in the 90's.

    The nut measures 1.6534 inches, which is 1 21/32. I didn't pull the pickups, though there is a number 12 & smilely face written in the trem cavity under the springs. Sadly, I've got it back on the market already as I don't get along with the narrower nut width.

    Great find man, especially if it has a regular neck carve!

    I am generally a WT guy, but my 1997 CE24 has a regular carve (didn't know they made them, thought I was going crazy at first) but I kinda like it to switch things up.

    This is correct in the instances that it isn't incorrect. The majority of maple top CEs I've tried have wide thin necks for example...

    Received the guitar today in excellent shape. It is indeed 1 21/32" at the nut. It's also lighter than my last CE22. Feels lovely! Pics to come tomorrow.
