So I've been looking for an extended scale 7 string and prs mark holcomb seems to tick a lot of boxes that I like. I've never played a prs guitar before. I've looked in stores for this guitar and haven't seen it in person. Can someone elaborate on what the neck profile is like? What can you compare it to if anything? Thicker? Thinner? Flat or round?

Subbing as I'm curious as well. I've played the 6 string version which has the wide thin profile, and I like that profile in the 6 strings a lot.

I've got one and find the neck profile comfortable. Of the handful of other guitars I've got I guess I'd say it feels most comparable to my LTD MH417 if that tells you anything. It's slightly thicker/rounder than my Ibanez's necks, they're definitely a lot flatter than the PRS profile. My powers of description feel pretty shit here but happy to try to answer anything else y'all want to know haha.

I have one, as well! It's my first and only 7-string, but I've messed around on a few other extended range guitars.
It doesn't have the super noticeable flat-backed neck like some 7 and 8 string guitars have, so it does have some roundness to it.
I'm probably biased, but it's the most comfortable neck I've played as far as switching from 6 to 7 string. It just feels like a 6 string with a wider fretboard. Very comfortable.
The only issue I've had is bending is a bit harder on a 26.5 scale for tension reasons, but I'm using 10 gauge strings on it and 9 gauge on my 6 strings which is pretty slinky by comparison.

Just got one last week and I really vibe with the neck, the neck thickness is comparative if not slightly thinner than the neck on my MH-1000. I’ve taken some pictures for you for reference
