Just how thick is the Fender Steve Harris neck?
I'm used to playing a Stingray, which is fairly thick. Is the SH model that much thicker?

Yes, and it has a wider nut than your Stingray too. It's simply massive IMO.

She's a handful...and with no neck dive.

I like stingray and most pbass necks but the steve harris neck is just ridiculously thick, Id stay away from it

I don’t have a measurement for you but it’s definitely pretty thick front to back. Personally I like it and I have really small hands. Fender specs say its 1 3/4” wide at the nut but mine is 1 5/8”.
I never thought I’d like a neck that thick but I do. My fretting hand seems to get fatigued less and I don’t find it any more difficult to play than my basses that have thinner necks.
I have another pbass that also has a 1 5/8” nut width but is much thinner front to back and for me the Harris neck is WAY more comfortable. YMMV.
It's been a LONG time since I played a stingray so I can't help you with a direct comparison.

It's thicker than a Stingray but I never found it an issue, if anything I found the SH more comfortable to play.

I had one of the rare 1 5/8 nut Steve Harris necks and it was one of my favorite P Basses. It was a handful, but a surprisingly comfortable handful. And I have medium sized hands.

Yep they're nice chunky necks that seem to stay in tune for ever. I think the 1 3/4" nuts are actually the rare ones despite the published specs.
