Says on gearnews that the 50s has weight relief and the 60s does not. Have not found info on Gibson's own site tho.
Are you referring to the current lineup of original collection Les Paul Standards? 50’s & 60’s gloss and faded? If so, gearnews has incorrect information. No standard from the original collection and Slash standard have any weight relief. You can find sub 9lbs USA standards if you look for it. I had a 8lbs 10oz Slash and have a 8lb 10oz 50’s gloss. I’ve seen lighter. It’s not unheard of to get to those vintage and custom shop weight range in the USA line without weight relief.
