Hi everyone,

Just wondering if anyone knows if this Gibson 2011 Custom Shop Les Paul Custom Q is chambered?


I've been scouring the internet for info but can't find any. Anyone on the forum know?

Thanks!
Andrew

It is 9-hole weight relief like all non historic customs.
I've seen some of these list as chambered. Can you give me some insight into how you know it's 9-hole weight relief?

The guy has it listed at 8lbs which is what makes me suspect it could be chambered. That's why I asked the forum.

Usually there's a "C" in the serial number to denote that it's chambered.

Yours has "CS" for Custom Shop. I don't know if Gibson would add another "C" to the serial number to denote chambered on a Custom Shop guitar.

My uneducated guess would be that it isn't chambered, but weight relieved as Searswashere said.

I have a 9-hole relief that weighs 10lb. There’s no guarantee of weight if its not sorted. Saw a 2021 lpc at 9lbs or so, also 9-hole.

Given the pickups are the same as a regular lpc and those are 9-hole and there isnt anything denoting historic reissue, it should be 9-hole like all other CS non-historic customs.

Call Gibson with the serial and they can probably verify.

I have a 2011 Silverburst and it’s 9 hole
Still feels fairly heavy like a Les Paul
My 60th R9 is way lighter

This will have 9-hole weight relief.
