    17 years too late maybe :p It'll take me that long to budget the money. The wife will most likely make me buy it out of my gig money :meh:

    I guess it's only fair

    It's cool and all, but that's one heavy son-of-a-b**ch!

    it says 30 lbs but we all know thats wrong:rolleyes:
    14 lbs probably includes the weight of the box and maybe a gig bag. probably 11-12 lbs maybe. :confused:

    30lbs is the overcharge because of the box size with ups.

    swampash 5 string, 14lbs sounds right

    Well, Rondo is only 20 minutes from my house, so with any luck next weekend I'll get to play one of these.

    Me too! After I picked my jaw up from the floor, I even uttered an "Oh my God!" under my breath.
    That is GORGEOUS! Some one PLEASE buy one soon and let us know how that B-string is!
