EB/MM Axis neck/frets

I got my Axis at the local Guitar Center, and it's the best guitar I've played yet. I've had it for months now and it's still amazing. However, my opinion of my RG470 (low end, yes I know) has been dropping steadily (might play better once I get the Edge for it, who knows) in terms of feel.

However, I am beginning to notice that the sustain on the RG in the higher areas of the neck is greatly reduced compared to the Axis. Is this due to the Axis' high-profile, medium frets & the RG's fat jumbo frets? If so would you recommend new frets (and which frets are on the Axis?)? Or would scalloping the higher frets be a better idea?

Also, I was wondering if anyone could give me the specs on the Axis neck. It fills my hand much more comfortably than the Wizard II and just by playing it feels like it's a lot thicker but I'm curious to know its exact measuments (radius, thickness, width).
