I need the neck angle for a PRS guitar

So I'm building this PRS style guitar kit for a friend of mine and the neck angle isn't right and its giving me really high action. It's set up like a strat where its basically parallel with the body. Now I've found places online that tell me the angle of the neck, but the measurements I need for the tools I have would be gotten by putting a yard stick down the scale length resting level on the frets and measuring the height of the bottom edge of the yard stick from the end of the fretboard in front of the neck pickup and the height of the ruler from the body just before the bridge. If someone with an actual PRS could give me those measurements, that would really help me out!

Thanks!

Can no one help me?? I've been sitting here all day waiting for someone to help me, I can't continue with this guitar until I get the measurements I need. Otherwise I'll have to wing it which I don't want to do...
