    Just for fun I checked the weight of my Corvette std. today. Comes in at around 10 lbs. Is this about average for the Vette?

    What they are, and what they feel like, are two different matters!!! I love my 'vette, but my only gripe is after a few hours (even with a great strap), it really starts to weigh down.
    Time to do some squat-thrusts, meh?

    I owned a corvette standard fretless. Sounded good, but it was like having a block of marble hanging from my shoulder. I eventually sold it because of that. Mine felt like a hell of alot more than 10lbs.

    Mine's definetly a little on the heavy side......

    I sort of like the weight though. It gives the illusion of rock-solid stability (though it may NOT be just an illusion.....)

    Warwick's weight definitely gives them a solid feel. I find i like the thumbs weight/balance better though.
