    The Gibson came with either a 60s slim taper or a 59 rounded.

    The Epiphone has a slim D profile, so that should be just a bit more than the Gibson 60s slim taper.

      I used to have a '92 Gibson ES335, with perhaps a chunkier 60s neck.


      My Epiphone 339 neck feels a bit more comfortable, as I recall my 335 anyway. I'd say it's like Gibson's 30/60 style. It's a bit thicker than my Gibson SG's neck, not much.

      For me, the Epiphone 339 neck is  "just right". Amazing for a $400 guitar.

        The epi 339 is definitely thicker than a gibson 60s thin taper, probably not quite as chunky as a gibson 59.
