    Only reason I’m selling is I promised my daughter I would pay the sales tax on the car she just purchased and I have another Big Al. Otherwise this one would be staying put!

    The serial number is in the last picture on the neck plate. I don't know what the exact weight is, it's fairly light. I'm guessing 9 pounds or less. The bodies on the Big Als are fairly small.

    Big Als are such underrated instruments. So versatile and killer tone. GLWTS

    An exact, accurate, weight will help sell this bass.
    I couldn't find one under 9 lbs when the first came out.

    Sweet. The passive parallel setting on the rear two pups is the bomb.

    Well I pulled it out of the case to weigh it and bumped it on the ceiling fan so now it has a small nick on the headstock but it only weighs 8.5 pounds on the bathroom scale.
