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, or a V2 SlimTaper™ ’60 profile.
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 three hand-sprayed nitrocellulose finishes: Iced Tea Burst, Antique Gold, or Washed Cherry. A Certificate of Authenticity keeps it real, and a Gibson Custom hardshell case keeps it safe.
Traditional solid, lightweight mahogany body with carved maple top nails classic Les Paul tones.
Custom Bucker humbuckers are the finest PAF reproductions Gibson has ever created.

Custom touches like split parallelogram inlays and front and back binding dress it up.
