    Ok so I love the "pattern" neck shape , how does it compare to the DGT neck ?

    Alright so now that Im pretty set to buy a DGT, I had the opportunity to demo a 408 today with a pattern neck... I LOVEDDDDD it, nearly bought the guitar right then simply 'cause it played SOOO freaking nice...But in the end, the pick ups didn't do it for me right from the get go so, still leaning towards the DGT.

    My dealer is suppose to call PRS to find out what they have in stock..

    How does the DGT neck compare to a pattern neck ?

    My old CE22 had a very WIDE neck but also slimmer I think and hated it. Im afraid anything wider than the pattern shape its going to cut it for me and ideally I'd liek to finrd out before ordering the guitar.I also enjoyed the frets, would mind fatter and taller but wouldn't want taller and narrower...
