Just in, in brand new, unplayed condition, this 2018 Gibson Les Paul Traditional weighs in at 9 lb 1 oz. Many do not realize that the Traditional is a full weight Les Paul Standard without weight relief. The appointments are otherwise the same.
The neck is a nice medium C with only a slight taper. The factory setup has the action a little high for my preference, but could be set quite low with a nice set up, as the neck has no twist and the frets appear well leveled.
The finish appears as flawless as can be expected with any lacquer finish to my eyes, and the maple top has a nice light flame.
All of the factory shipped items are included.
