I think the big question is.... Have you actually ever played a scalloped neck, or are you just going by what other people have said about it. I have a few guitars with scalloped necks, some scalloped from the 12th fret on, some completely scalloped, some like my green JEM, only scalloped on the last 4 frets. I like them a lot, but my favorite guitar that I play more than others doesn't have a scalloped board. It's personal preference but I would suggest playing a guitar with a scalloped fingerboard for a few hours before taking the file to your Les Paul. I would, if I didn't know anyone with a guitar like that, would go buy a cheap guitar like a Jay Turser Strat ($150) and take a 3 corner file, a half round file, and some masking tape to protect the frets somewhat, and do a scallop job on the neck myself, then play the **** out of it. It's not a hard job to do yourself, but it is time consuming.
So. If you throw a cat out of a car window, is it considered "kitty litter"?
