What year is your R7 and what are the measurements at the 1st & 12th frets, respectively? My 2010 measures 0.940" and 1.02"

The neck on my 2003 BRW R7 is smaller and has more of a vintage-like feel than the necks on any of the R9s I have owned

.898" 1st fret
.987" 12th fret


You didn't ask for a photo but here's one anyway :)

My neighbor and bandmate has an R7 from Wildwood. I measured the neck on Sunday to be 0.887 and 0.989. It's smaller than my '07 R9.

1999 R7
Measurement: baseball bat

If someone can give me the details about how to measure, I could update this evening after work.
Are these measurements from the center of the back of the neck to the face of the fingerboard between frets?

2011 R7, "soft D/C" 1st .903 12th 1.007


My 2007 R6 is .930 @ the 1st, and I'm totally comfortable with either.

Mine were taken as you describe with a set of digital calipers/verniers. Careful with those as they're very easy to scratch the neck with.

I wish a could tell you, but the last time that I played an other guitar than mine was more than 8 months ago. So I really have don't have something to compare it with. The neck on the R7 is thicker than the '90 Custom neck.

Mine's 16.5", thank you. Not sure why you want to know that.

My 2001 Black Beauty R7 is huge. I need to measure it next string change. Makes my 2001 R8 seem small and I thought it was big until I got the same year R7.

Seeing the Blacktop R7 in tdarian's post above reminded me that I have another '57 RI. This guitar started out as a goldtop CR7 and I repainted the top black, which is why I forgot that it was a '57 RI.

.912" 1st fret
1.009" 12th fret
7.57 lbs

The Blacktop/natural backs are so awesome. I would love to have one.

It's not only the depth measurements at the 1st and 12th frets you need it's the degree of shoulder(s) that the neck has.....that's its width and fullness in the hand.
Have a look at MGL(Mark's Guitar Loft), he has the best descriptions of any of the dealers when it comes to LP necks etc.

Oh, yeah; mine weighs 8# 15oz, but that's with a steel Callaham TP & Grovers.
