8 lbs. 13 oz. Very slightly used-still dead MINT CONDITION. We see a LOT of Les Paul's around here. Just sayin'. This guitar has all those indefinable hallmarks of the great 'bursts of the year it is being Reissued as. The venerable '59. This guitar was supposed to be a Gibson Historic and for some reason only the powers that be at Gibson knows, it was reclassified as an R9. This guitar looks, plays, sounds, and feels like a $12,000 Historic Les Paul but can be purchased for what a nice R9 goes for. Gibson Final Pack Checklist dates the guitar as made Jan. 22, 2016.
