My 60th anniversary R9 is at 7.7lbs
I’ll never sell that one as it sounds sublime

I've had quite a few over 9 lbs. I won't get the "weight debate" started but in my experience the heavier ones typically sound a bit more mid-focused and punchy. But the differences are minor and subjective.

My opinion on LP tone is Player>Amp>Pickups>Wood

As for my current favorites, both are around 8.6 lbs.

yeah I tend to agree specially on the player - amp chain...its just that it seems that light historics, sometimes too light ,are becoming too fashionable and predicted while back in the day the weight thing was a thing of chance depending from which tree and where the wood was cut from. making the light and the heavier ones have their unique tone.

I'm with :jb:, I don't consider Les Pauls that weigh less than 9lb. </troll>


My 2 2013 R8s are 4 and 4.1 kg.
