    PRS makes a whole variety of neck sizes. But I'm just curious, what is probably the most popular that people actually buy?

    Wide fat? Wide thin? Regular? What?

    I probably see more wide thins than anything else hanging on the walls at local stores. My guess would be W/T but I don't know for sure.

    I believe that Wide/Fat is most desired which is probably why the thins are still hanging there.

    That's what I've always wondered, is it because the other sizes are bought up first or are they shipping more W/T than anything else?

    Generally I find that it seems people like thin(ner) necks, although I'm the complete opposite. I did buy a PRS with a W/T neck simply because it was a very good guitar. I don't think I'd let a neck carve influence my decision enough to pass on a great guitar.

    +1 I've heard the same thing from a couple of stores. In fact, you can see the same thing with the online dealer inventories. FWIW, 7 of my 8 PRS's have W/F necks, the other one is a PRS Bass. :AOK

    Being that the wide/thin is only available on the 24's, I have to think the W/F is the most ordered. THe McCarty and Singlecuts all have a version of that as it's only available carve.

    It's quite comfy, not to wide or fat unlike the name implies. My favorite is the 'Regular' Carve only available on Custom 24's now.

    im voting W/F myself. lve the carve and most people i know do too. it was my first "big neck" guitar and it was a nice introduction that stuck with me.

    WF is probably most popular. Its my favorite, followed by regular and WT. I have a WT thin. I'm not overly neck picky, but probably won't buy another...yet won't sell the guitar with WT :)

    Not true. I have had 2 Custom 22s with W/T neck carve. Having said that, I like the W/F carve better.

    i like the wide thin the most of their shapes. the wide fat just feels so uncomfortable to me for some reason. that and any v shaped neck make me cringe.

    Just picked up a Mira w/a regular neck. Both guitars at the store had regulars. Very comfy neck IMO.
