It didn't seem very heavy to me. 1/2" Birch ply and the strips are 1-1/2" x 1/4ish" Aspen. I didn't think to weigh without the head in place. I imagine it's going to be a bit heavy with cables and a couple of mic in the longer back end cap and the cubby hole beside the head. See if I can weigh the sleeve with head tonight.
