Speaking of neck width at the nut... I have a Gibson ES-339 and an Epiphone ES-339 Pro P90. For the most part - same guitar, different factories, different pickups, neck specs slightly different. The neck on the Epiphone is quite noticeably wider at the nut (which I MUCH appreciate), is also bound, and just slightly fuller than the neck on the Gibson. I much prefer the neck on the Epi ES-339 vs. the neck on the Gibson ES-339. The narrow nut width on the Gibson ES-339 borders on being too tight for my liking. I prefer a little more space for my fingers. BIG kudos for the Epiphone ES-339 Pro. Priced at a small fraction of how the Gibson ES-339 is priced... it's hard to argue for spending 4x to 5x more for the Gibson product, especially when the Epiphone version has what many would argue has a better neck! The neck is where the pedal meets the metal, the primary and most significant "interface" between the player and the instrument... and is something that can't reasonably be changed on a set-neck guitar. Pickups, pots... can be replaced, if desired, and still keep the price of the Epi dramatically less than the pricey Gibson. And as for the P90 pickups in the Epi Pro... they sound GREAT! I wouldn't even dream of replacing them in the Epi ES-339 Pro.
