    I would guess around 8 1/2 lbs. It's lighter than my other two guitars.

    Right amp for it too. Man, these old Burny Customs are the only things that make me think I might one day own a Custom. I need to look away so the madness passes. But the JB LP. I will own one of those one day. Great collection!

    So you didin´t sold your Ox Burny? Nice to see you got the custom.
    I have a 84 RLC-60 wich is a awesome guitar. A bit heavy but tone for days.

    Nope, I still have the Oxblood. It's a killer guitar.

    I also noticed this morning while I was sitting here drinking my coffee and looking at it, that it is a all mahogany guitar too. Like a true Custom should be.

    Yeah they all sound good thru that 18 watt Blockhead. For me, this Custom is close enough. No, it doesn't have a ebony board(dyed rosewood), which is kind of a big deal but it's good enough for me and that's coming from a pretty die hard Gibson guy. Not to mention the price difference, which is huge.

    If you've never had a oxblood wraptail, I would strongly suggest you try one. Killer guitars period. The Fernandes/Burny is my 7th one. The others all being Gibson custom shop models. This one holds its own. If you like wraptail's, you'll love a oxblood.

    Yep. Mine also back and top all mahogany. Just the fretboard isn´t "period correct". But awesome tones anyway.
