Nightswan vs Proaxe

Just ordered a new Nightswan. Stuck with the polka dot model though. Anyways, wondering if anyone has specs on the Nightswan and Proaxe necks. I remember the Nightswan being tiny back in the 80's, compared to the two Stagemasters I had at the time, but not sure how much different it is from either the current model or my Proaxe.

the original Nightswan had a R1 size nut. and the Proaxe had a R2 size nut. The new Nightswans have a different neck profile than the original. new ones use an R2 nut size. The original nightswan while having an R1 nut had a much more rounded profile though. the newer ones seem more like a proaxe neck than a nightswan neck. All of them use the gibson scale length.
