Sorry for what?

Regarding weight, It was just your comment that had me wondering. No big deal. Enjoy your new axe. Looks sweet.

Good point, the 'sorry' now comes across as passive aggressive or something. I was just trying to say that I couldn't answer your question. Once the guitar is dialed in (setup and maybe pickup adjustment), I just play 'em and change the strings occasionally.

But I do think you should start a thread about light guitars if that is what you are looking for. I just don't know much about the topic or I would chime in.

I have wanted a DC Les Paul for 25 years at least. A buddy had a DC "Rock and Roll" edition Les Paul in the 90s with two humbuckers that I have kicked myself for not buying ever since then, and I've never seen another one.

So the other day I learned about the existence of the DC Tribute line, and about 10 minutes after I learned about them I bought one. This is used from GC, but there is not a mark on it. I've seen plenty of 'new' guitars in worse shape.

That said, it came with 11s on it and the action is high for my taste, so I'll have to swap on my customary Ernie Ball 9s and set it up in the next day or two. I can't believe how light this guitar is. It weighs just a tiny bit more than my Casino, and the Casino is fully hollow!

Sorry the pic is grainy, it's overcast outside so kind of dark in my house right now.

That's a beauty. P-90s are really great pickups for both clean and dirty sounds.
