Universe Neck Thickness - Which Is Right?

I'm confused because I've read posts that say the new UV777BK has a "beefier" neck yet when I look at the specs, it doesn't seem true. My booklet that came with my UV777GR says thickness @ 1st fret : 20mm; thickness @ 12th fret : 21.5mm. This is also listed under "common features" in the Jemsite Jem/Universe specs section. For the UV777BK the Ibanez website says thickness @ 1st fret : 19mm; thickness @ 12th fret : 21 mm. Is it that only the 2001 UV777BK's have this thinner neck or do all of the new UV777BK's have this measurement?

Universe Neck Thickness

Since each UV is hand-finished (by the folks in the J-Custom shop), you're going to get variations, albeit minor, in each UV neck. *
It would be tough to find two UV necks with EXACTLY the same thickness.
