FR series neck etc

Hey, been trolling around here for quite a while without posting a whole lot, but the time has come! \o/

The thing is, I have an Ibanez SZ320MH, the ones they stopped making a while back. I love it to f'in death and it's going to stay with me forever. It was the first guitar that was actually mine.
However I really do want a second guitar as I've had the SZ for 5 years now, been playing for about 8.

The thing is I can't seem to find another guitar with a similar neck that suits my needs, so to speak. The one on my SZ is more round than all the other Ibanez' I've played, but still somewhat thin. I have your typical "piano fingers" that are long and boney haha. I want something versatile with an unfinished/not painted neck that doesn't have the more "flat" RG necks. Played an ESP Eclipse the other day and it was nice, but the width/spacing between the strings or whatever was so narrow that my hand just ate up the entire neck. The MM Silhouette however is pretty bang on when it comes to being similar to my SZ's neck, but it has SSS or HSH configs, which causes me to hit the single coil when playing, not cool =[ Need a HH config.

****, long ass rant but ok, QUESTION IS: Is the FR neck something similar to my SZ or the Silhouette neck? I read that it is a thin neck, but it's more round than the RG's...
Haven't been able to try one out since they don't have em in at the store that carries Ibanez atm.

Ask if there's any confusion to all this! =)

The neck on the FRs is the same Wizard Prestige that's on the Prestige RGs. quite a bit thinner than on your SZ.
