My LP weighs a shit tonne more than either of my basses. Can do a whole gig on the jazz easy, but my back only lasts a set on the LP.

That surprises me. Bet it's not that heavy compared to some.

It's the second heaviest LP I've ever picked up, so technically, you'd be correct. Couldn't care less about the weight though.

This is technically a Les Paul.

Been demoing new songs over the last month or so and quickly took this the other day! I'm not an overly sentimental type person but this guitar has a bit of a special story. After both my grandparents passed away I was given a bit of money as an inheritance. I grew up thinking goldtop LPs were the most amazing guitars, and as I got in to Split Enz it became a Deluxe. Anyway, long story short I'd saved enough that when I got it I thought this was a very fitting guitar to remember them by. Thanks to grantb, and misterb for playing their respective roles :thumbup:
