It's a big turn off to me, the idea of it, I haven't actually had much time to play on one. To me the entire idea of that les paul tone was that giant slab of mahogany just pushing it's weight around on each note, so to lighten the body just seems to be a terrible idea to me. If you have experience with both, I'd be really interested in your opinion. Maybe I'll get a go on these chambered LP's.....maybe I'll need to look at some used older models. Any feedback would be appreciated.
