Not neccisarily.It's down to personal preferance, buy it's harder to play faster on a 50's than it is a 60's.

To be exact, the 50's neck is more like a rounder baseball bat feel to the back of the neck, or the underside. Takes more hand to play it, if that makes sense. The 60's neck is less of a circumference and well, slimmer. Both play nice and solid. I dont have a preference, I own both, an 87' Custom and a 00' Classic

He uses dozens upon dozens of LP's chances are they will have either neck profiles.
Ibanez -> Peavey -> Eardrums

Apparently I'm on some list of people to listen to..?

right now i have like a begginers guitar, an Encore KC3, i find the neck a bit too thin, my fingers sometimes block another string, but when i went round my mates house, he had a les paul standard and i found the guitar was easier to play because i noticed the neck was a tiny bit bigger, so should i get a 50's neck? And how muck thicker is the neck of a 60's compared to a 60's?

50's necks are thicker, and 60's necks aren't as thick, try out some LP Standards and compare the necks.

in gibson, wht is better the les paul classic or the standard, i think the classic has better pick ups?
#16
It's all opinion.

Although I prefer the sound of Standards, but they're more expensive.

if you're serious about guitar, you'll be upgrading from the epiphone in a year or so, unless it's an elitist. which i still would rather have my gibby

yes but the elitist is cheaper, and many say it's just as good as some Gibsons

I don't know what the epiphone necks are considered, but they are thicker than many other guitars
