Makes a huge difference to me, though it didn't used to. As I've older, and 'thicker' my fingers have also gotten thicker and my joints a little stiffer. As such, a little wider string spacing helps make my playing more accurate. Also, I've always preferred thicker necks, like 50's-style Gibson necks and 'fat-C' shaped Fender necks because it puts the thumb in a more natural position for me when playing in the 'proper' position, as I'm trying to retrain myself to do. I've learned about technique lately that I'd wish I'd paid attention to decades ago.

Though I speak with the tongues of men and angels, but have not love, I am but wasted bandwidth.

I suppose I'm still a sprightly young lad. I've just never come across a guitar whose neck really bothered me.
