6-string neck with the same feel of 90's UV?

I own a 90's Universe whose neck is simply the best neck I've ever played in more than 20 years of guitar playing. I also happen to own a 7VWH, which is a great guitar, but it doesn't have the same neck feel of the UV, it's rather thinner and the profile just feels completely different.

I know I could just use the UV for everything, but I'd like to have a 6-string to play with my current bands. So, here's the question: could anyone recommend me any 6-string guitar model to try, whose neck could possibly feel similar to a 90's UV?

The trouble is that, in my experience, the 90s UV are all different shapes. They do tend to be thinner than their modern equivalents though. A 90s RG is probably the closest you'll get.

Same as the above, owned a few UVS and they all felt very very different.

I really like the feel of this UV neck, and knowing that it is possibly unique, this is indeed a bummer...
