Theres different 'raw power' versions.... just to be complicated. I think it was 2013? They did it again, but this time with maple neck and top cap instead of all maple. And ive got a feeling there was a different one before the 2009 ones
Yeah, this caused me some confusion yesterday, but I expect it of gibson. One model one year will have no weight relief, the next year, it will have their most drastic version. One year it'll be maple top, the next year mahogany, and then one year, it'll have some hand time on the neck, and the next, it'll be like the two later fadeds that I got and the tribute les paul (which looked OK from about 10 feet or further away, but looked like someone painted it with liquified sugar close up and had the same mis-fitting fingerboard that the last two fadeds did.
I looked the raw power studios up yesterday and saw listed models from 10 pounds 2 oz down to 7 pounds 5 oz.
And then as you mention, one of the versions was just a natural topped les paul with a mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard (like a les paul classic spec guitar), but it was listed as "raw power" and I thought it was mis-listed. Nope, it wasn't.
