I'm looking at the $2500 to $4000 range for a substantial, deeper neck. Thanks Bob.
Well at $4,000 you should be able to find a maker who will dimension a Neck to your own satisfaction. You will just have to put some numbers to it.
Here's a list of Neck thickness of some well known makers:

My standard Neck thickness (1st fret) is 21.5 mm's, which is probably very near to being the average. The Torres at 24 mm's would be considered a very chunky Neck.
It's not just the depth though, the actual shape will have an important bearing on how it feels. A 'D' shape will feel more substantial than a 'C' shape. So a 'D' shape Neck at 24 mm's is a sturdy chunk of wood indeed.
