IMHO, the Rosewood Board Jazz neck on my P feels very chunky, but very comfortable.
The blocked necks all seem much thinner from fretboard to back of radius, the white blocked is thinner then the rosewood neck with the dots (nuclear orange tint).
My neck with the cream binding and blocks is the thicker and the black binding and blocks feels very much like my Squier VM Neck. I also had a rosewood board, white bound and blocked Jazz neck and that felt about as thin as the black blocked neck.
Or, more simply - from thickest to thinnest -
Rosewood finger board, dot markers Nuclear orange tint = thickest
Maple finger board, Perloid blocks and Cream binding = thinner than above
Maple finger board, Black blocks and binding = thinnest (same as my Squier VM)
Rosewood finger board, Perloid Blocks and white binding about the same as above
