OVERVIEW

One small inch for Les Paul, one huge change for the rest of us.

However much you love the classic Les Paul look, feel, and tone, some playing styles just require a longer scale. Whether it's bangin' dropped tunings, liquid-like slide work, or meaty low-string twang, or just a preference for a little more string tension and a longer neck, the Les Paul Long Scale from Gibson Custom nails it all. With a 25-½" scale length, it brings an alternative playing feel, piano-like bass notes, sparkling harmonic clarity, and characteristic long-scale "snap" to the table, all within the template of the world's most highly prized solidbody electric guitar.

This meticulously crafted guitar from Gibson Custom hits on all the high points for long-time Les Paul fans. A solid, lightweight, one-piece mahogany body and carved two-piece maple top; glued-in one-piece mahogany neck; classic hardware; and Gibson's impressive and extremely PAF-like-Custom Bucker humbucking pickups deliver timeless Les Paul tone, with much more when you want it. All that, and the Les Paul Long Scale is available in both of your all-time favorite Gibson neck shapes: a beefy true '59 profile (shown here), or a V2 SlimTaper '60 profile (our sku# J08382).

Its looks stem from classic Les Paul aesthetics, too, but with a few elegant twists to enhance visual interest. Single-layer reissue cream binding graces the bodies top and back, the rosewood fingerboard carries split-parallelogram inlays, a Gibson Custom medallion covers the rear switch access (spare plastic cover included), and it's all dressed in your choice of hand-sprayed nitrocellulose finishes. A Certificate of Authenticity keeps it real, and a Gibson Custom hardshell case keeps it safe.

      Comments about Gibson Custom 2014 CS Les Paul Long Scale Electric Guitar with '59 Profile Neck:

      I sold my two R9 Les Paul guitars last year and have been more in Strat territory recently. When I found out about this model I took a chance and no worries with MF's return policy. I like a little bigger neck and this is very nice, feel at home. Now I can get the tones I want with the longer 25.5 scale, another plus. What a great guitar, will be keeping this.
