I was at Sam Ash today and was playing different LP's. They had a new black LP Classic that felt like it weighed to me at least 10 pounds or more. This struck me as odd since they are given the ol' 9 hole weight relief treatment. Curiosity got the best of me so I looked on Sweetwaters site and they currently have 4 offered in Ebony that all weigh between 9.10oz - 10lbs. Thats heavier than some of the new non weight relieved Standards. So the 9 hole weight relieved Classics are heavier than the non weight relieved Standards. This is by no means to start a Gibson bash (I'm a fan) just curious to what gives here?
