My friends Epiphone Les Paul. I play a Jackson RR, which is a very light guitar. I'd only played the Les Paul for a couple minutes and my shoulder was already getting sore.

While I never had the opportunity to play it - in fact, I only saw a photograph of it - in 1979 Ibanez made a limited edition of their flagship Artist model made of solid brass. The body, the neck and the headstock were made of brass; as was the hardware. The only wood on the guitar was the fingerboard. It weighed sixty-seven pounds. Imagine slinging that thing around your neck for a three-hour show!

The heaviest guitar I ever did play was an Alembic back in 1978. God only knows what kinds of exotic woods it was made of, but it weighed a freaking ton.

I've noticed that Les Paul's are pretty heavy. I don't know what's in them that makes them heavy, but I guess out of all the guitars I've played, they seem to be the ones with the most weight.

my A-7 schecter is heavy and its really wired when i try to write on my razorback DB (air) then it (stone) it throws you off, which is why i play it higher up it balances it out

Holy crap! Good luck playing that behind your head.

On topic though it would probably be my friend's B.C. rich warlock.

My Dean DBDT is incredibly heavy. It makes everything else feel really light.

In fact, I love how light Les Paul's are. Strat's and Tele's are like clouds hanging from my shoulder.
#18
I've tried a few different guitars in my life and i'd say most B.C Rich's are very heavy.
Of all my guitars, i find my BC Rich KKV the most heavy.

Jackson JS30RR Randy Rhoads

First time I picked that thing up I thought someone was hiding gold in it or something.

Also, the gold would justify the high price (GC had it priced at 600 dollars, when on MF its 280-310)

My Jackson DKMG is really heavy for the EMG's
Panties 'round your knees
With your ass in debris
Doin' dat grind with a push and squeeze
Tied up, tied down, up against the wall
Be my rubbermade baby
An' we can do it all

My way - your way
Anything goes tonight

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Haha... +1.

I've got a crimson swirl RR1. Great guitar, but there's just not much actual wood to it. I love it, it's light as hell, but I like having a bit of weight to my guitars. My friend Jack came over with his Epi LP Custom, oh man. Thanks to my Jackson being in disrepair (blamed on tools AND strings being stolen -.- the downside of too many musician friends(if you call those friends)), I've been playing his LP non stop. I sit down and play it now, it's more comfortable and the fact is that sunuvabitch is heavy.

Great list Rutch. On re-reading this one I'd have to say Solid State means not liquid or gas.

I figured it out.

Prolly my Squier, weighs about 10 lbs, its a freaken solid chunck of alder.



Alder is a light wood compared to Mahogany or Maple. Strats are generally pretty light.

Its a toss-up between an old National O-style, (Solid steel construction, mahogany neck, et cetera) and this Explorer a friend of mine has. It weighs like twice what mine does.

You don't need a guitar...just an amp with a hellava lot of gain

EDIT: Wait, are we talking physical heavy, or sound heavy??

I've got a hard ash Telecaster that weighs in at a shade under 13lbs, which is the heaviest that I regularly play. For reference, my Gibson is around 9lbs. This is why I don't understand why people think Les Pauls are heavy.

Though I did recently try a Gibson Les Paul Raw Power (entirely rock maple LP) and that weighed more than anything I've ever tried before. I don't know exactly what it's weight was but it was noticbaly more than my Tele or any bass I've ever played - I would take a guess at it's weight being around 16lbs or so.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

'73 Les Paul Custom.

I'm used to my PGM that weighs less than nothing.

finally someone lists a les paul that's actually heavy.

it's really only the '70s les pauls that are true to the "les pauls are way too heavy" thing everyone goes on about.

Quote by wolvenrick

well, les pauls aren't as heavy as people say, only the '70s les pauls. even then i would imagine if you're used to a '70s les paul you wouldn't really think it's heavy because you'd just be used to it.

Gibson Les Paul. I played one at guitar center. I do own an epiphone Les Paul junior though, and that thing is pretty heavy also.
