    What is a relatively light weight for a Swamp Ash P body?

    I found one that is around 4.5 pounds. Is this light or heavy for a Swamp Ash body?

    Warmoth lists the weight of there bodies. That might be a good place to compare.

    Are Warmoth bodies considered heavy or light?

    I know some strat bodies are around 3-4 lbs, and even higher. Just depends on the piece of wood, and some strat bodies have a lot of routing done to 'em. For a bass, 4.5 lbs seems just about right to me.....right in the middle between heavy and light.
