    hey all, this was one of my fave necks and I miss my old Rocco.

    I'd like to get something with similar neck specs. anyone have specific measurements for back of the neck at nut and 12th fret ?

    other details are 1 5/8 nut, 12'' radius, 60's C Shape, jumbo frets

    any help is appreciated !

    I hate to say this but I have 3 Eastpoints and the neck carves are all different. Seriously, true all of the Eastpoints are beefier than all of the current necks but, other than that, it's difficult to generalize about 'em.

    Jon, thanks for the info.

    even a ballpark estimate would be great. I'm wondering if any of the suhr neck carves are close ?

    I don't think Joe N. likes disclosing the actual specs, but wish he would offer that neck carve again. I have an older Warmoth std neck (from when they only offered 2 or 3 options) and this seems pretty close, but with 10" radius and 6105 frets.

    maybe I can pose this at the Rev Congregation ?

    Mike, I wish you had asked me this last week, on Friday I had two of my Eastpoints in Phil Jacoby's shop and we could have measured 'em for you. I would offer it still in a heartbeat 'cept I don't have calipers of other measuring tools. But if you can be as specific as possible as to where on the neck to measure I can try to eyeball it for you on my guitars.

    EDIT: Oh, I see you have been specific. Let me see what I can do in this regard later this week (tonight I'm heading right out to the ball game!).

    thanks Jon, appreciate your help !

    I'm finding most companies provide measurements at nut/1st fret and then at 12/13th fret.

    By that, do you mean across the fretboard, width-wise on the neck, or both?

    I'll try to get this done this weekend (feel free to email me if I forget or don't get to it, I've been overwhelmed with responsibilities of late for various reasons and haven't been on-line very much the past week).

    no, not the width but the depth (back of neck profile). don't know of any way other than to measure w/calipers. (top of fretboard/back of neck)

    Yeah, the problem is I don't have 'em, oh well. But tell ya what, I could use a pair anyway so the next time I'm at Home Depot I'll see if they have a pair I can cop for a reasonable price.

    OP: why do you not just buy another Reverend with an Eastpointe neck?

    Peace.
