Um Wait a minute, 8~9 lbs is weight relieved?
If they use lighter mahogany, they will get raided by the Feds again and accused of violating some other country's laws for illegally exporting lightweight tonewoods. :rofl
Time to make them heavy again like those 70's and 80's Les Pauls we have come to know and love.
Another good example of WTF from the Custom Shop:
A $4,299 weight-relieved Goldtop that's still almost 10lbs?! No comprende.
Yeah, I saw that they were exclusive to WW. I'm not sure how much water that holds, since I see things touted as exclusive to stores all the time which eventually end up at other stores, albeit with some slight variation. Regardless, I'm surprised WW would pony up for these, which are basically USA Standard specs but made in the Custom Shop. I remember the 'original' JB run sitting on the shelves for a while as well, so it seems like an odd choice all the way around.
