Just curious, why does this make sense?
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.
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.
