Suhr and Tyler necks are very different. I've had both and played a lot of different Suhr necks. IMO, you're not going to find a Suhr that's remotely close to a Tyler neck, and vice versa.

If you know the specs of the Tyler neck, I can try to take a shot at the closest Suhr neck. Suhr does custom neck stuff as well of course.

Seriously? I guess it's close. I've played those necks and never got the impression that it felt like a Tyler neck at all.

The best bet would be to have Suhr customize your neck to the exact shape you want... or here's and idea... get a Tyler! :D

Suhr and Tyler have very different approaches to building a neck...

yeah, but I prefer the Suhr headstock :)

Tyler is supposed to be a 59 neck back shape and 1 5/8 (41mm) nut width.

I didn't measure my Tyler neck, but I think it's a touch bigger than the Suhr Even C Huge which is now spec'd at .88-.98. I think if you had Suhr build you an Even C Huge oversized (+0.10) it would be close.

I didn't say it was exactly like a Tyler, I said that I thought an Even C Huge oversized by 0.10 would be closest.

It's a very small upcharge to get a neck oversized. Even if he orders that, he still won't have the comfy rolled edges or the same finish as a Tyler.

I actually have both and love both.....but like the Tyler a wee bit better......I actually like the Suhr with the even c medium

Additional variable is that there is a a difference in Tyler necks from Tyler to Tyler....not radically different but sufficient to notice if you play a few Tylers one after the other.

This used to be the case but now that Tyler's got a CNC, I would think that their neck feel is more consistent.
