Look at a PRS s2 custom 24. About $1400, 24 frets, American made. I have one. Great guitar!

The Epiphone Prophecy GX's have Gibson 490R/498T pickups in them. Or replace the pickups with whatever you like. Doesn't change the 24 frets.

Personally, I'd just go buy something else with better access, and drop whatever pickups you want into it. One slab of mahogany doesn't sound a whole lot different from another.

I have a Gibson Les Paul double-cutaway with 24 frets. They were only made in 97 and 98, maybe 99. It's a studio model, I've seen ones with trapezoids online though. They were made to compete with PRS.

This one is the same sunburst as mine, I'm too lazy to take pictures. Chambered body, maple top. A single cutaway with 24 frets wouldn't make much sense.

Coming from someone who has played both I feel that ESP Eclipses don't feel like Les Pauls at all. As for sound, I've only played Eclipses with EMGs so I can't really give an accurate comparison as to how they would sound.
You'd probably do well to look into Agile - I've never played them but they certainly look Les Paul-ish, and they're too small a brand to have been sued by Gibson yet xD

...and of course it does make sense, and a lot of it.

I'm not sure why you'd think that, but there are a lot of us who play 24-fret singlecuts. And more companies who offer them these days. Gibson started in the early '70's with the L6S, but they've not been in front of things on purpose for 50 years. Which is why the OP is scratching his head looking for Gibson LP singlecut 24-fret guitars. While the DC might have a Les Paul sticker on it (Gibson has pasted it on semi-hollows, etc.), it's not what most would think of when "Les Paul" is mentioned.

Other companies have offered 24-fret single cuts and that's where those sales have gone.

But it's interesting, it seems that building only 22 frets guitars is kind of a tradition for Gibson. Even Explorers have only 22 frets, it's strange

The guy asked about 24 fret Gibson Les Pauls so I posted one. I wouldn't really think of a L6S as a Les Paul, a Les Paul DC I would however. You're right though, OP should get an ESP or an Epiphone.

Or a Moonstone or a Nik Huber or a Trussart or a Carvin CS or...

There are a LOT of 24-fret singlecuts out there, on the high end as well as on the low.

They *have* done 24-fret guitars. The old (and new) M-III. The old (and new) L6S. The Buckethead guitar. Several models of SG. Several models of the DC. It's just that they haven't done a standard LP in 24.

It's an Agile, not a Gibson, but...
