    I hear you loud and clear my friend. When I researched all of the mods that
    would reduce weight, the result would probably leave me with a pretty "piss
    poor" sounding guitar. Such is life brother, and it doesn't always go how we'd
    like it to. I've come to terms that I just need to "sit" and play. If I'm ever so
    moved to get stupid; like in my teenage years, SG's kick ass too.

    I hear you , and its not ever going to be the most economical or smartest way to get what you desire.
    But , for me this was more like , lets see how much can be done , and still have a Les Paul. I do plenty of stupid things with my amps and guitars that only makes sense to me , just to end up with something that I like .
    I only wrote about it here because the question comes up very often all over the web
    On many guitars , a pound less is do-able , and thats something everyone can feel.
    In some cases , it could make the difference between not-really-using-this anymore to having a guitar that gets used.
