Summary: 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.
Body: Lightweight, one-piece mahogany body. Carved two-piece figured maple top. Single layer cream binding on top and back. Iced Tea Burst nitrocellulose finish.
Neck: Mahogany set neck. “True ‘59” profile. Bound rosewood fretboard with split parallelogram inlays. 1.687” nut width. 25.5” scale length.
Electronics/Hardware: Two Custombucker pickups. Two volume and two tone controls with gold top hat knobs. Three-way pickup selector. Nickle hardware. ABR thumbwheel bridge with stopbar. Reissue Kluson-style tuners with single-band green keys. Cream pickguard and pickup surrounds.
Cosmetics: This guitar is in excellent condition with little sign of wear apart from light pick scratches on the plastic pickguard. The frets are big and full. The light burst finish highlights the figured top and the double-binding and split-parallelogram inlays bump the class factor up a notch. Overall, a superb looking and playing instrument.
Playability: The beefy vintage-carve neck and extended scale length bring 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 solid-body electric guitar. Gibson’s impressive and extremely PAF-like Custombucker humbucking pickups deliver timeless Les Paul tone. The action is to factory spec with no buzzing or dead spots.
