My little research was triggered from the light weights that are associated with the reissues. I wanted to know if the old ones were really light. My point is they were not, they had a variation but they were around the earthly weights we see today of a Les Paul Traditional let’s say (the non weight-relief).my response was definitely snarky, not really my intention. You've clearly done some research, it was more directed at, why? Any evidence that it makes a difference, or just that you love bursts? I've had a few and haven't found many consistencies other than i get older and my tastes change, so judging one is hard because I change more than said guitar.
