    Hi,

    Though I'd look to the wisdom of the group before pinging customer service. I have a prophecy GX lp - it has a 14 inch radius neck that I absolutely love! Better than my PRS S2, AM Strat, Taylor - you get the idea. So much so that I'm wondering if there are any other models of LP out there with the same or similar neck 'cause I might want another one :-) . I'm especially interested in the plustop pro FX model with the Floyd.

    Anyone know?

    Thanks so much.

    The Plustop Pro Fx has 14" radius
    Joe Bonamassa Firebird 1 14" Radius
    Prophecy Les Paul Custom Plus 14" Radius
    Prophecy SG Custom Plus 14" Radius
    Prophecy EM2 Custom EX 14" Radius
    Epiphone Les Paul 1960 Tribute had 14" Radius not sure if the tribute plus does though

    I have owned all of the above and so can verify that they are all 14" Radius

    And then there's also the Les Paul Traditional Pro, 14" radius. I don't own one, but I will tomorrow. :D

    Epis I own with 14" radius fretboards:
    My 2013 1966 G-400 Pro
    All three 1961 50th anniversary SG Specials

    I haven't checked the following:
    1989 G-400 Korean made
    2007 G-400 Vintage with bound neck Chinese made (I'm willing to be it's 14" but we'll see)
    2013 Sorrento -- indo made

    Epis with 16" radius fretboard: 2015 LP Special I w/ Humbuckers made in plant 13

    I found the 14" and 16" radiuses while doing fret levelling, since I typically prefer a radius block for that. I was gonna do a fret job on my 1989 but even with a bit of fret wear, its frets are damned near perfectly flat. So next fret job will be on the 2007 Vintage / Faded G-400.
