Exactly. Is there even one?
Time to convert to the church of Ric5 and turn a four into a five. It's hard to say it, but if an Ibby SR neck is too stout, a five string just isn't in the cards for you.
Edit: I have the hands of a small child and find not-so-thin necks easier to play on. Find something a little heartier like a Warwick five and see if that works better. Peruse stores.
