I suppose a high-end Ibanez would be closest to a Carvin, at least in terms of the body size and neck profile. Carvin necks are very close to the Wizard neck on the UV777... just a shade under 2mm thicker at the 12th fret, just over 1mm thicker at the first fret, and a little bit less wide. In terms of contour, it begins as more of a C-shape and tapers to more of a D-shape toward the body. It's quite subtle though.
Keep in mind Carvin gives you a 10-day trial once you've received your guitar. If you don't like it, just send it back no questions asked.
