Hi! I'm new on this forum and I had a question to you gibson owners out there. Even though the title pretty much says it all, here's the longer story. I'm about to get an american special telecaster from a trade, really cool guitar. Thing is, I already have enough tele's and I was thinking of trading it for a gibson tribute goldtop 2017 or 2018, or selling then buying. Anyways, my concern with most les pauls is that they are often body heavy. I know that the 2017 has 9 holes weight relief and the 2018 doesnt have any. Still, I'd like to hear from people owning these guitars or people who have tried them before to see how they balance on their laps, since I mostly play and record sitting. Is there really a big difference? What solutions do you suggest to make the guitar balance better? Thanks a lot!
