Gibson Les Paul weight-relieving chart

I’ve see a lot of information regarding Gibson Les Paul models weight-relieving, but never a condensed, concise chart about all the variations. So, based on all information I could gather, mostly from here and here, I compiled the chart below.

Year Standard Traditional
up to mid 1982 solid N/A
mid 1982 to late 2006 9 holes
late 2006 to 2011 chambered 9 holes
2012 and beyond modern
