    So there are many Spector vs- Warwick threads out there, but I haven't seen about the necks of these basses.

    So, what is the difference? which one is thinner and less nut width?

    I like the sound of both and I still haven't had a change to try them out!

    There are many variations of both manufacturers, even for a specific model from year to year. So it's impossible to say. I have an oil-rubbed '99 Spector NS4CRFM which has a super slim neck...but even the painted neck model of the same bass is said to be like a telephone pole to some. I noticed a difference but I didn't think it was a major one so it also depends on the bassist as well.

    Tough question, as they have many different neck profiles.

    I have two USA Spectors and a Warwick Streamer Jazzman.

    My 4 string Spector is an NS-2J. Compared to my Warwick, it has a wider nut and fatter back. The Warwick has a very slim, narrow Jazz shaped neck. I believe a Spector Doug Wimbish model would be very close to the thinner Warwick neck. In general, I think Spectors are wider and fatter. I love them both though :)
