I’m thinking this as a 14 Degree headstock to neck angle.

Will somebody verify this for me?

Hopefully not.

14 degrees would be way too much neck angle.
Neck angle should be around 4 degrees.
But even that is too much.

Most necks are set with too much angle which is why so many bridges and tailpieces have to be raised so high and it makes it difficult to get the bridge pup height close enough to the strings.

I was referring to the Headstock angle to the neck where there is the Gibson 17° angle and the Gibson 14° headstock to the neck angle. I thought maybe you would’ve caught that. I will rephrase the question.
