Neck width and thickness is about the same. There is a thin profile option, as well, which is closer to the 80s Carvins, from what I've heard.
I've owned a '96, '98, '03, '07, and '15 year neck thrus, all were very, very similar, minus neck build materials. I think the '07 was maybe slightly narrower, but it could've been due to having a tung-oil neck vs. a color-finished neck on the others. The bolt-on necks have thinner/narrower necks to me, except for one that I found second-hand that was spec'd differently, and its dimensions were that of the neck-thru types.
As far as build quality (not asked about, but still relevant), I believe it's improved. Not that the 90s were bad (quite the opposite), but the newer ones feel even more solid. Plus, they have some very wild options now, and some exotic woods (purpleheart is on the builder, and I've heard mention of cocobolo and ziricote). The same applies to all the paint/color options.

Do or do not; there is no understand.
