  1. Wow, that seems especially heavy for that style of bass.

    Back in the early 80s weight was considered a good thing in a bass.

    Speak for yourself :D I never bought into it. The day I first put a heavy bass on my shoulder, I knew it wasn't for me. Wasn't as picky about a certain weight level as I am now, but I had zero interest in slinging 10+ lbs of bass.
