Hi all,

I have an Epiphone Les Paul Standard, because I like the sound, the shape and the looks of this guitar, and the neck profile is also very convenient for me.
The only problem is.. I have broad fingers, so I cannot really play on the higher frets (above the 17th fret), my fingers are simply too broad to fit between those frets.

I've checked many manufacturers so far, Gibson, Epiphone, Cort, Vintage, ESP/LTD guitars, but their Les Paul shape guitars have the same scale length.

So I'm curious if there was any guitar that have the same look/shape as a Les Paul(or at least very similar, I love this shape very much ), but have a bigger scale length, so the distance between the highest frets would be bigger?

P.S. I'm a lefty, so i'd like to buy only a left-handed guitar, but if U know any manufacturer that produces les paul-like guitars with a scale length bigger than 24.75', write it here

Thanks in advance for the answers

Look at Agile guitars. You can order semi custom specs (what you want is not a common guitar) and get a 25.5" or 27" scale LP shape.

Godin has a few LP style guitars in the 25.5" scale length. And I know they make lefty guitars. I don't know it they make THESE LP style guitars as lefties.

Also, look here: http://www.adirondackguitar.com/lefty/lh_electrics.htm

I did find a Reverend Flatroc there, equipped with RevTrons- their miniHBs inspired by the FillerTron design- and I know from personal experience they're good guitars. Not quite an LP shape, but a nicely carved singlecut Korina body...in a 25.5" scale.

Rondo's probably one of the best sources. They have two different versions of their AL-627 (LP shape with a 27" scale); one has 22 frets, the other has 24 frets, and that's actually a stock guitar.

In addition, their "semi-custom" guitars can be had with either a 25.5" scale or a 27" scale.

Be careful with Hagstroms -- some have 25.5" scales but others within the same general model designation can have a 24.75".

The Gibson Nighthawk has a 25.5" scale, but is an entirely different guitar from the LP. While the body is still a single cutaway, the guitar is notably different.

Duesenberg starplayer special (25.5 inches)? I know some of Duesenberg guitars come in Left handed...

However while it looks similar to a LP, it is quite different technically
