    Around 10lbs on my bathroom scale
    Give or take a tick... Balances great and I play it Friday and Saturday nights every weekend 3 one hour sets and it's never been an issue and my shoulder isn't the best for sure

    Thank you, sadly I have three fused vertebrae in my neck making anything over 9.5 lbs uncomfortable. GLWTS.

    Would you have any interest in trading for a Alembic Rogue 5 and a Ken Smith BSR5j Tiger Maple and maybe a little cash?

    Howdy,
    I'm in Boston and would be interested in checking the bass out in person sometime soon.
    I've forgotten how to send a personal message- maybe you can send me one to get us started?
    Thanks,
    Chris
