    I have always wondered this. Why don't more bass manufacturers show the weight of the instruments? Weight has recently become an issue for me due to having shoulder pains. I go to the web sites, and it is hard if not impoosible to find. I know I can get a general idea from the wood and pickups used, but I would like more specifics. Where can I go? :help:

    You could narrow down the list of possible basses and then call the luthiers about the average weight of their basses.

    Keep in mind that two basses made from the same materials can have extreme differences in weight.
