Weight relief 101

Gibson Les Paul weight relief



That is hideous!!!   :wideeyed:

It is my deluxe goldtop, butchered.  Crime against nature.  I think the guy who did this should have his arms and legs cut off, in a similar fashion.

Everyone bitches bout how heavy the LP 's are and they bitch when someone tries to remedy the problem.  :D

I think thats the new LP travel guitar !
I have been fortunate enough to get a great bite of the Apple of Life. One thing I know for sure. Watch out for the Worms!

A friend of mine posted a pic of an SG that that had been modified.  The headstock was cut off, and placed at the tail of the guitar to make it a sick, perveted Steinberger kind of thing.

That SG works... maybe
Does anyone ever read these things.  I have some guitars, some amps and some effects but none of them play the guitar for me.... Yet.
