I think my LP is a 60's neck, how thick is, say a RR3 neck compared to it? and I know this might sound really noobish, but what does it mean when they say a guitar has a fast neck, is that the neck scale?

A fast neck, is normally a combination of a short scale, low frets, low action, which normally uses very light strings, making it very easy to move fast around the fretboard and fret strings quickly. As for neck thickness, my LP is thicker than my strat, but the LP has a shorter scale. I think the strat is easier to play though but it varies from person to person.

what are some examples of fast scales?

Ibanez generally have very fast necks. (So I've heard.)

You're not wrong I've got one. An RG1570. Lightning is sluggish in comparison.

Strats are quite thin, Telecasters are chunky, as are Gibsons.

To be rude, that is not a real question. The real question would be "what scales are easiest for newbies to play." Which suggests closely packed scales. Let me cop out and point you to a site that shows you scales being played. Then you can answer your own question!

^Pretty sure he meant which scale length on necks are considered faster, which IMO is still a poor question.
