They feel like a Mockingbird.

2009 Epiphone G-400 (SH-4)
Marshall JCM2000 DSL100
Krank 1980 Jr 20watt

I equate my Mockingbirds to 'souped-up' Les Pauls. They feel very similar, only 'faster', if that makes sense. The 'Bird necks are generally thinner and set/ through-neck versions have a very smooth heel, but the rest of the specs match up to a LP almost 100%. They both have:

Mahogany body & neck
Ebony fretboard
Carved top
TOM bridge
24.75" scale
2V, 2T, 3-way electronics

Heck, even the positioning of the controls is nearly identical to that of a LP. The only real difference with the particular model that you mentioned (Pro X) is that it has 24 frets, a feature rarely seen on a Les Paul.

They have the wide neck.

1 and 11/16 inch with a 12 inch radius.

Some refer to it as a shred neck, but as
mentioned some LP's have the same
neck dimensions.

I have an older Mockingbird neck on a
Tele and love it. It is a 25.5 inch scale
with 24 frets and a flatter neck. It is
considered a shed neck.

BC Rich necks are different from any others I can think of and some love them and others really hate them. as mentioned they are kinda wide and on the fat side. while I usually go for thinner necks I have no problems playing my Eagle and prefer it to a LP.

ive always felt that schecter drew heavily from the mockingbird for the synster gates sig. dimensionally almost identical as well.

It depends on the model. The profile on my Mockingbird Special, while probably a little wider, feels very similar to the '60s slim taper' neck on my LP.

However, I also have a 'Masterpiece' Mockingbird that has a freakin' baseball bat for a neck. But, that's a completely different animal than what the OP is asking about.

I agree each mockingbird model has a completely different feel and vibe to them a special and special x feels like a ebony necked slim taper lespaul. I love that model. some like an older nj has a super thin neck. I think the prox should feel like a esp'ish
