I'm curious about which basses people have (or know about) that come in at 8 pounds or less in overall weight. Whether bought complete at a store or know of luthiers that build them. I'm looking for normal scale length, not short scale ones. Also, are there any basses that look like solid body ones but are actually chambered? How does that affect the tone (if at all)? I have a Roscoe Century IV that's just over 8 lbs, and it makes standing with it for long periods tolerable. I have an SX jazz bass that sounds and looks great, but weighs over 10 lbs and after 2 songs I need to sit down.
