I'm thinking of getting an LP Standard, and I was just wondering what the difference is between the 50's style neck and the 60's style neck

The 60's style neck is known as a "slim taper" design reputed to be a much faster neck. 50's style necks are aka "baseball necks" for obvious reasons. This doesn't necessarily mean that one is faster than the other. Although I prefer the slimmer necks many people have even been known to "shred" the 50's necks. It is probably a matter of style and taste. Check Gibson's web site for more details (measurements.)

50s is thicker than the 60s; I'm also thinking of getting one, but I'd like to hear what ppls experiences with the two are like, cause I've only tried the 50s so far.

slimmer necks are easier for those of us with short fingers

Fatter necks are generally more comfortable to play for long periods of time.

Sorry to stray a bit off the topic, but does anyone know what neck the Epiphone standards would be based off of?

The thick and thin neck is more a preference thing, with how you play and what your comfortable with.

Mine is definitely a 60's style, it's very thin.

However mine was made in like. . . 97? I think.

Your right, I don't think they'd change the neck styles on the Epi. ^^

Also I just checked my guitar, the neck is pretty thin, I suppose it's 60's then.
