    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?

    Warwick also do a datasheet in Imperial measurements. they claim (for bubinga models):

    Corvette Standard 4: 8.36 lbs
    Corvette Standard 5: 8.80 lbs
    Corvette Standard 6: 9.24 lbs

    The datasheet is here: http://www.warwickbass.com/specs.html

    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.
