Looking for answers to questions on a Les Paul GT

Hi all. I'm wondering if anyone can provide me with the exact details on the construction of a LP GT. I know what I can find on websites, but I am looking to know the details on the woods and construction. Is the mahogany weight relieved, chambered, or neither? Thickness of the maple? Number of pieces for the body construction? If anyone can clue me in to these things I'd appreciate it.

Thanks!

i totally misread what he wrote anyway... for some reason i was thinking he meant goldtop and not the model GT. sorry.

and yeah, clearly thicker in the middle. i meant that it was a 1/4 (roughly) at the edge and thicker in the middle. i don't know what was wrong with me when i wrote that first post. beer perhaps. ](*,)

Is it just me or does anyone else also feel the flames on the GT are pointing the wrong way? I mean I would imagine the guitar to be flying to the left in playing position, headstock first in other words. The flames are indicating its going body first. Just doesn't feel right. Sorry Spindrift, no offense. Beautiful guitar in all ways!

I've got her since a year now. I thought it was quite difficult to find! That's the only problem. I hope you will find one!

 

Thanks hfd

 

lol no problem MCK. I'm beginning to know you now!

 

I live in the "Alpes de Haute Provence" in France, near the headquarters of the brand "l'occitane". For me the flammes are pointing in the right direction! 'cause this just makes me think of the "grill" or "Barbeuq" as we say at home in provence. ;)

Hi Toggy

 

love the faded models too. Specially the honey burst=p~

 

For the orange GT Take a look at this one. The guy won her and never played with her...What a shame!
