Which Customs have the long tenon?

I was thinking of getting ahold of a new CherryBurst Custom, but wasn't sure if it had the long neck tenon or not. I know the historics do, but what about the others?

The '68 "reissues" have a long neck tenon.
As do the 54 (P90) and 57 (2 or 3 Burstbuckers) reissues. Both have a Mahogany top, the 68 has a maple top.
I had a 68CA, awesome guitar, great neck and frets. Heavy as hell.

Shame of it is none of those come in Cherry Sunburst. I was looking to kinda give the Ace treatment.

You'll have to go used for a Custom 68 in Cherryburst, like this one on gbase:

'57 Customs also come in a Faded Cherry color. I've seen a few.

tonebender,
I do believe the 68 reissue custom does have the long tenon no matter if its black, white,natural or sunburst. I know that unless Gibson has stopped doing this all Les Paul Customs are currently built in the Custom shop reguardless if they are a specific reissue or USA model Custom. The White Customs are being built in another plant maybe Memphis last I heard.
