rear of neck profile change?

I played a 2002 Jem7VWH and a 2003 Jem7SBL. The SBL had a rosewood fretboard whereas the VWH has ebony.

My concern was that the 2002 neck seemed perfect. But, the 2003 seemed almost square-ish. both necks were the same thickness at midline. However the 2003 felt as though it were thicker than the 2002 as I moved away from centerline towards the low E string.

Was this just an anomaly or was there a change in profile of the back of the neck? I am strongly considering ordering a 2004 Jem7VWH. However, the neck issue has me concerned. If the neck has been changed, then I suppose that I will buy the 2002 and live with the ebony fretboard.

I've never noticed a difference on any sbl or vwh neck in either 02' or 03'. Either they screwed one up or you percieved it wrong.
