Can someone tell me if the 2013 Gibson Les paul traditional pro Goldtop is weight relieved or is it solid body? I've read mixed statements as if 2013 trads are weight relieved/chambered or a solid piece of mahogany.

This particular 2013 gold top has 50's neck 57 classic pickups.

All Trad Pros are weight relieved.

An easy honest mistake is to confuse the Traditional with a Trad Pro. The regular old Traditional is solid.

But only solid with the 2013-2014 specs and weight relieved prior

My "weight relieved" '13 Trad Pro weighs in at a hefty 9lbs 8oz! My Trad weighs 9lbs 12oz. Both are great guitars IMHO. :hmm:

Yaeh, that's sort of confusing traditionals and traditionals, isn't it?

Yep they are solid. I gigged the h3ll out of mine last night with the band. Never missed a beat and tonight it looked fresh as a daisy. Just finished a 45 minute practice session with it. I like'em. :naughty:
