    Can someone please compare the size of a r0 neck to another neck.. Maybe a fender CS strat 60’ relic or a PRS neck. I am really interested in getting a VOS LP but I am worried that the r0 will be too thin. I have a les paul studio lite from the 90's and the neck is way too thin. The r9 feels great but I want a plain top. Should I get an r8 and get the neck re-shaped?

    Thanks!

    Then don't do an R0.

    The R0 neck is thicker than the LP Standard/Classic '60s neck. If possible go check out some G0s, R7s, and R8s and see which is best for you. Also, you can get plaintop R9s and R0s. They're rare, but they do exist.

    Personally I love the neck on my R0, very comfy to me but then again I don't have too much trouble going from thin to thick necks, and vice versa.
