Report Les Paul Classic ordered. in The Gibson Lounge Posted January 22 · Edited January 23 by wildebassman Well, came in today, there's nothing like the real deal... The actual weight is 9.7 lbs, was advertised as 9...still seems to be pretty normal for a modern LP. Man.. opening the case..just that smell, sweet, sweet, sweet ..not a flaw to be found, beautifully made, it truly is a new era for Gibson. ..Compared to my old 90's studio this is in a completely different ballpark build quality wise. The studio is a great player too though. Also string spacing and the rest is perfect.
