• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Custom Shop ... not custom at all

Contacted my local Gibson dealer to make an inquiry to Gibson CS about a M2M build.

I asked for a particularly large neck (1.1" @ 1st fret) with a V shape: Gibson CS replied, no can do. I know guys with LPs that have that profile from the factory so I know it has been done ... not to mention 1957/58 models with serious baseball necks.

Are you limited to what their CNC machines are programmed for? Don't they have people who can profile a neck to order?

What's custom about the Custom Shop?

Rant off.
