Always liked the looks and sound of the SR5 but the weight kept me from buying one. Seemed they were always 10 or 10.5 lbs and that was heavier than I wanted at this stage in life. Then I saw this one at Sweetwater listed at a svelte 9 lbs even! I grabbed it: It arrived today, just finished adjusting the action and intonation a bit. Must say the necks on these are just wonderful and the tones I can get from just the single H pickup are fantastic. And despite its lighter weight it balances really nice, no neck dive. It's a keeper.
