The heaviest LP I heard of is 14 lbs....but it’s just a claim... never verified as far as I’m concerned.
Yikes! Haha my Norlin Standard is a little over 9 pounds and to me that’s heavy. Granted, I was a Stratocaster player for the past ten years, so I guess the weight of a Gibson Les Paul is new to me.Some kind of valid weigh in is preferred to back it up, but you can tell us a story you've heard from your brother's friend's neighbor who used a chinese made bathroom scale. Just let us know how accurate your info is!
Can I start here?
My first guitar was a 78 Custom in wine red and I'd have to say that thing weighed 11ish lbs. I never did weigh it, but know it was a heavier guitar than my current 68 RI which is almost 10# even.
Another heavy LP that I had was a 12.0 lb 1985 Custom. That thing was a boat anchor! ... and that was 12 lb on a bathroom scale.
