So, I dismissed other guitars because of the neck feel. When I first pulled the Shorty out of the case, I thought, "Oh, that neck is a lot thicker."

There is so much good about that guitar that I didn't write it off immediately. A day later, I didn't give it much consideration. If I play for four hours (rare), the muscles in my left hand feel it. I don't notice that with my other guitars. That said, it isn't a problem, just a difference.
This is really an excellent description of the N2, its really not the thickness as much as its fullness. Its a modified U profile, I have not found another acoustic that goes there. But that said it is still a very nice neck. I find it seems right on my JM1000. On my Parlor it just seemed out of place, when my thin Taylor GS Mini arrived. Many people love that full feel and I do like its consistancy up the neck, so best to try one.
