Being a current owner of loads of most makers I dont get too terribly stuck on profiles unless they are just profoundly uncomfortable or awkward. The Horus has the the thickest of the bolt-on necks, but it's very comfortable. The Applehorn is the thinnest of them all. Even though I have a lot of Jackson and Caparaison - I dont think it's fair to compare them really. They're so different in so many other ways that may affect playability for you. Its always a crap shoot..
