8.5 to 9 lb guitars with non weight relieved bodies are the target range for Historic LPs. A 9 lb USA Gibson Standard has had 2 lbs or more of extra weight drilled out of them. There's the difference the titebond sniffing crowd pretends doesn't exist.Not bashing here, but that "lighter" thingy on Reissues does not seem a rule to me. I still see way more over 8.5lb reissues than under 8.0 (and lot of average 9lb). My R8 it's 7.7lb, but I really struggled to find it that light.
