In order to coordinate giveaway drawings to the Supporting Members there will be a new alignment in the naming of the tiers. (Note: Non-Supporting (Basic) and Monthly Supporting Members can get into the drawings by mailing a postcard. Details on that will follow with a giveaway starting soon).
The pricing for each Supporting Membership level remains the same though the naming of them will change. The privileges remain the same as current but with the new name. If you are a current Supporting Member, you will be upgraded automatically for the existing term of your Supporting Membership. We are introducing a new tier with new perks.
All memberships will now have the option to remain as non-recurring memberships or choose reccuring memberships moving forward. *Note: current memberships will NOT be changed to recurring memberships.
Well for me a S or T type guitar means more sparkly tone with better note definition. I feel you get that better with a lightweight body. A LP type to me is a more full sustaining tone which a dense, heavyweight body may help.Just curious, why does this make sense?
I see what you mean, but there are so many examples out there that conflict with this premise that I wonder if there is actually a correlation, at least in regards to the Fender types (I know squat about Gibsons).Well for me a S or T type guitar means more sparkly tone with better note definition.

Certain guitars you cannot sell without disclosing weight. Fender spec sheets say "sorted for light weight." The websites of certain large retailers list the weight of every guitar. Lots of smaller companies market light-weight Southern Ash. Through all this, G&L seems to have given a rat's __s about guitar weight. Their guitars are all over the weight spectrum. You can custom order a ton of options, but ask them to sort for light weight and you get a firm "no." I know, I've tried.
Anyone have any thoughts on why? Maybe they have taken a company position to reject the value of light weight guitars. Maybe it doesn't make business sense. Maybe they figure that's what the hollow bodies are for ( although I've played some that were as heavy as solids). I've just always been curious.
