That's they way they do it now for the 2014 models

http://www2.gibson.com/News-Lifestyle/Features/en-us/Gibson-s-2014-New-Model-Year-Enhanced-Playability.aspx


"On recent models, the frets stopped short of the neck binding; 2014 New Model Year Gibsons feature frets which reach over the edges of the binding to provide a smoother playing surface, especially if you find yourself in the midst of an especially impassioned vibrato workout on the high E string."


Well I didn't know they had done that, learn something new every day lol.

Thanks! come to think of It I actually may have weighed it before I had the pots, knobs and bridge on there and that might be where I got my earlier number from.

there was a thread on mylespaul a while back where a guy went through and put his old norlin era LP on a diet. he shaved a lot off the total weight by replacing hardware and pots etc with lightweight quality stuff.

some people swear by lightweight hardware and say they can hear a difference.

I don't think I've ever played anything in black walnut. It's a great ice cream flavor, so I assume it works well for a strat too.

That guitar is beautiful. I'm probably going to break down and blow my tax return on one like it.

I'm used to the chunkier weight, I may consider that in the future though haha

yeah i mean it's not a "heavy" one as it is, so i probably wouldn't either.

it's nice to see gibson making the newer finish colors. i'm sofa king "tired" of cherry bursts it's not funny.

Wow, thanks guys, that means a lot, makes the sting of seeing the money gone in my account go away haha.

I have to agree, refreshing to see something different than a tobacco burst or wine red haha.
