Optimal Les Paul Weight?


Recommended Posts

As I think I posted in another similar thread, I've played a bunch of LPs in my seemingly endless quest to own one and though I usually enjoy playing any of them, the 2008 Standard, the Classic, and the Supreme, all chambered light weights are no longer on my shortlist.


I'd own a 50th R9 already if they weren't so freakin' expensive. The Traditional is sweet as is the Custom and if I could ever find the solid mahogany candy apple Custom I played back in the mid-late 90s, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Naturally had no money at the time. But, man, what a brick it was. Had to easily weigh over 10lbs.


So, I guess heavier is better in my LP book but it's all about the tone "YOU" are looking for in the end.

You can have two blanks of wood the same weight and they will sound different tonally (FACT)

Depending on the age' date=' growth area, mineral content, and fiber density of said piece of wood makes the difference tonally(FACT)


And I do play and work on guitars (FACT)
