I have the 32" and it's perfect . I went with a Maple body thinking it would be a little heavier to counter the slightly heavier Padouk neck. The bass is maybe 9 lbs if that but I have yet to put it on a scale . it's perfect though , not even a hint of neck heaviness . It worked out well but I don't think I'd try say a Wenge neck on a light Ash body that could perhaps throw it off.
