• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Hi fellas, I know the weight of Klusons is at 5.1oz but wanting to know what total weight it is for all the other hardware for LPs etc, humbuckers x 2, stoptail, ABR-1, pots, knobs et al.
Any answers gratefully received, thanks.

I’m reluctant to disassemble my Les Pauls in order to ascertain the full answer to your question, however I did weigh the metal decorative medallion switch cover that comes with the more recent LPs and it was 30 grams or about 1.05 ounces.

Aww come on t you'd do it for me wouldn't ya :LOL:
Seriously though, I thought someone on here would have the answer.
What I will achieve eventually is, finding out what the maximum weight of a carved ES 335 body needs to be to come up with an 8lb fully finished guitar, a pet project of mine.
