Hey guys, if anyones got a Les Paul out there could you do me a favor? Please measure the length of the case in centimeters and let me know how long it is?

I got the itch...again. 

Cheers, Scott.

What one of the many Lester cases?

I have my LP in a series 1 Protector ("chainsaw") case from the mid 70's.... short of a Calton it's the best case for shipping a LP in by a fair bit

The LP case when standing beside my Larrivee OM case is about 3" shorter

Hey dermot, just need the length of the standard issue Gibson case that the 90s-00s series LP's have. I just googled it. 43 in = 109.2 cm.

Scott I have a 1978 and a 2007 LP

The length of the outside  of the case is 106cm for the 1978 and 109cm  for the 2007.

As far as I know a LP case is a LP case regardless if it's a studio, standard or custom.

Seems like just Headstock clearance as both guitars fit in either case.
Hope this of some use to you. Not sure why Gibson increased their length of the case

If you are getting an itch for a LP do yourdelf a favor and get your hands on an RS4 before you decide - I AM NOT KIDDING the RS 4 is THAT GOOD!!!!

Thanks for the info mate. Yep, Ive played an RS4 and I agree theyre very nice, but Im a Gibson junkie from way back, and I cant resist the draw of a Les Paul. I played a Traditional Goldtop today, and was given a really good price so I'll probably go ahead on that one. I was originally going to buy one from the US and ship it to Oz, hence me wanting the case dimension, but I can get one locally for similar money it seems.

The Larrivee P-03 takes another step down the "want" list....sigh....

Cheers, Scott.

Gibson scale (24.75") definitely has it's own personality, both in tone and playability; everyone should have at least one!

Mine's a lefty Epiphone Elitist Les Paul - excellent quality and tone!

Thanks, Scott: I'm watchin' from the window with my guns loaded.

Doesn't even begin to get into my Warmoth builds...

(P.S. That black Strat is gone now - nice guitar, but the neck was on the thin side for me.)

Thanks, unclrob - coming from you that's high praise.

Now - enough thread hijacking, back to the discussion about Les Paul's and their thick, greasy awesome tones (the good ones, anyway).

Hi Scott.

I was going to measure my cases but they are both from non-standard Les Paul's so I figured that wouldn't necessarily be representative of what you might get today.

So I went to the source.

I just sent this to service@gibson.com
I'll let you know what they say.

Thanks!

Hey Scott !  That's not nice.     True, but not nice.   
Mike has got a great collection of electrics but I'm more into acoustic these days. Still have three electrics though.
Used to have Les Paul Standard cherryburst that I loved but I sold it several years ago.    just have the strat, the Gibby ES-335 and the Carvin TL-60 now.    Possibility that the Carvin may find it's way to Mike at some point.

Hey Tuffy, Im the same, mainly acoustic but I had an Electric jam the other day with the singer out of our trio (he's a really good drummer too) so it kinda got me looking at Electrics again. Im so easily led!

You pretty much summed up my wish list for electrics there, ES335, Les Paul and a Strat.

Ive been back to that shop 3 times now to play the Goldtop..... thats not a good sign for my bank balance... cop
