Gibson says you there is no sonic difference but if thats the case, why premium select the lighest "pre routed" bodies for the Historics?Out of every 500-1000 pre routed mahogony bodies, very few [3-4] weigh 4 lbs or less to qualify for a Historic RI. These are considered the premium select bodies.
