Added 5 gats and separated between electric and acoustic. The average for 1st, 6th and 12th fret (column B, C, D) are for electric only.

Note that the PRS McCarty Soapbar 2001 is bang on the the averages! Not sure what conclusion I would like to deduct from that :D

Surprisingly so. If asked I would have sworn the Danelectro and Supro were far slimmer than the rest but I think the method of measurement here is playing a large part. If we were using calipers to measure from front ( fretboard ) to back ( neck centre ) I'm sure there would be greater variance.

Thanks, will update spreadsheet when I have a mo.

Very interesting to see that the R4 and R0 have measurements are not too far of my reshaped neck. I am sure that people would classify these two as chunky.

I take your point about top of fretboard to bottom of neck is a crucial measurement. Show me an easy way for people to take that measurement without having to take of strings and I will add a column to show it once the measurements flood in... :wink:
