    Re: How much does your Les Paul weigh?

    the other guitarist in our band has couple of 90's classics and mine seems notably heavier than both of his... i was surprised at the weight difference between them... it is no wonder that Jimmy is beginning to slump a little as the years pass...

    Re: How much does your Les Paul weigh?

    my 2005 standard is 9.7 pounds I believe. I just weighed myself and then weighed myself and the guitar and subtracted.

    It doesn't feel very heavy at all too me though. Obviously compared to strats which I was used to it is but its definitely not uncomfortably heavy.

    +/- 73 Custom 10 lbs. I absolutely dont care for the weight. Give me 12 lbs Norlin every day. I am not used to light guitars, they seem like toy to me.
    My diagnosis is: Hiwatt and Norlinphilia

    1970 Gibson Les Paul Custom Black Beauty
    1972 Hiwatt DR103, 1972 Hiwatt SE4122

    My '01 R9 is 8.75, my '74 Custom is in the 10 range.
    The older I get, the more I see to notice the weight of the Custom, especially after a 3 hour gig.
