    It's been a short run, but I just decided to save up for another jazz - so this guy is out.

    I really like the way this thing plays - You can see full NBD review here: NBD: NOS? Essex (SX) Content

    170 shipped in a box with a TON of newspaper and old kinda raggedy gigbag. -exactly what I bought it for.

    Great question! No idea lol. It's pretty light by comparison to my MIA ash Fender jazz. I don't have a bathroom scale, but I might just grab one today to get you a good answer.

    Thanks - that matching headstock is calling to me! :D

    After a couple of attempts I've narrowed the weight from 8lbs-8.6lbs (not to be confused with 8lbs 6oz)

    Frustrating - now wish I had one of those hangy produce scales.

    May I ask what the nut width is? That looks awful slim for a P bass.

    You can get a good little hand held digital luggage scale on eBay for about $8 shipped.
