i'd like to think that all Edwards LP's are totally SOLID and not chambered like the new Gibson LP's. X-ray pics of Edwards Les Pauls would be good... anyone?

Roger (tudor) said he had some and would post soon. Like I said in the earlier post, my Edwards Jimmy Page went thru the airport Xray and I saw the image - no holes in it other than the p'up and elecronics routing and wire channels. TSA wouldn't let me behind the xray unit with my camera.

say cheese

well, some say that gibbo started chambered bodys in late 2006 and weight relief holes (swiss cheese) in way back early 80s?

greco has made chambered/pancake body LPs in 70s and there's some others for sure ...but

edwards/esp...naah ....i don't believe it


btw. i don't see any problems with this ... weight reliefed/swiss cheesed or not ... if it sound good

All Edwards Les Paul are full solid.

There are no holes or chambers in it. My Edwards Goldtop has a very good weight - about 4kg. Without holes or other weight reliefing methods. Gibson Standards have about the same weight - with holes or chambers in them.

As it was stated before Greco already built chambered Les Pauls at the end of the 70s. But I don?t think it?s an advantage in any way. Both the new Gibsons or the old Grecos which are chambered don?t sound good in my opinion!

Yeah no kidding.....try standing up on stage with a 10 lb boat anchor strapped on for 4 hours during a gig. I actually got numb on my shoulder and neck from where the strap was digging in. That's the only complaint I have about my Love Rocks.....they're real heavy but my lightweight Edwards JP sounds as good if not better and I'm not crippled the next day.

i have heard about some very light Edwards LP's. in the 3.5 - 4kg range. i would then assume that if they are fully solid, than they must be using very light mahogany.
how would the tone compare of, for example
Edwards Jimmy Page 59 model to a Greco mint series LP custom.
my Greco weighs 4.4kg, and is solid i believe, and has a really nice full tone without being thin or muddy.

I have a friend who is a veterinary surgeon ... and in about 5 weeks I will have my little puppy ... for me she's the entrance to the XRay, because also the veterinary docs have to document every shot they'll do ...
I will take my Eddie and my Gibbo with me to take some pics ... but I'm sure the Eddie is solid - not my Gibbo ...

Roger

Anyone happen to get any pics? I have to say I'm still skeptical. Love my Edwards, but just seems too light to be solid Mahogany. Allegedly, someone over at Harmony Central emailed Ishibashi and received a positive reply that Edwards does indeed weight relieve the Les Paul copies.

Next week ... or in the first week of the new year ...
They said the XRays will not work because they are not determined to make pics of wood ... but I don't believe that ...
I'll take my Gibbo and the Eddie with me ...

So - be a little patient ...

Roger

That's what I'm claiming all the time ... but there are still disbelievers around ...
