Fender A Width Neck
I bought a vintage Fender P - 75 with a 72 neck. Haven't received it yet. It has an A width neck. Will this neck be smoother to play compared to modern era P Bass necks?

That's J bass width, 1.5" at the nut...
It's a Precision neck (4 bolt, truss tod nut at the heel, etc.) that is 1.5" wide at the nut. None of that really determines how "smooth" it plays. Nut width has no real bearing on the neck contour, quality of fret work, or how it's set up.
As I find narrow necks that are deep front-to-back much less comfy than a wide neck that is shallow front-to-back, I would say, "No, it won't be smoother". You may find it more comfortable however.

I have a 76 P with the A neck you're talking about. It's definitely not thin front to back like the modern C-shaped necks, nor is it thin and wide like some of the modern multi-string basses. It's more of a U-shape. It's very thin at the nut and gets nice and beefy as you ascend the neck, unlike the modern stuff which feels way skinny to me with not enough wood.
