    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.

    cr8z, even c huge, huh ? thanks

    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.

    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.

    I was under the impression Suhr's 50's round profile was closest to Tyler's.

    Excellent. There are so few 12 year necro bumps.

    On the bright side at least the person is using the search function properly.
