That looks awesomeA gift from the legendary Rush guitarist - made to his specs. It will be for sale at the usual places next week.
This will probably be my next guitar purchase... assuming I can find one when they become available. I've been looking for a semi-affordable LP with a Floyd Rose style locking tremolo. I do wish they offered it in a solid color. I really don't like the cheap looking Epiphone burst/flame.
Sure it is. Better pics here:Does not look like it is recessed ?
These have started popping up on sites this morning. I bought one off of Reverb that weighs 8.8lbs which is in between my Epiphone Les Paul Modern (8.2lbs) and my 50s Les Paul Standard (barely under 9lbs).
Does anyone know if this guitar is weight relieved? I read that Alex Lifeson has no relief in his Axcess model so I assume this one doesn't either.
Only guessing, but considering how much is carved out for the trem, electronics, and belly cut it doesn't look like there's much room left for weight relief.
I'm really curious what the neck is like - specs just say Lifeson profile, no indication of shape or thickness. Looks like it might be a bit fuller than a slim taper but it's too hard to tell from pictures.
