Hi, I need help from experienced players.

Want to buy my first Caparison and have found a used Horus from 1996., apart from a few cosmetic scratches the guitar is in good condition, the neck, the sound, the frets, everything checks out.
But it's still a 20 year old guitar, what do you guys think? Is it worth the risk in your opinion? I can't try it out, it's in another country.

Also wanted to ask about those early necks, I am looking for a shorter scale guitar and a Horus fits perfectly in my opinion, but what about the neck thickness from those earlier models compared to now? How do those necks compare to let's say a Dean vmnt, or an Ibanez neck?

Thx for the help
