    I know this is a really basic question (and I couldn't find the answer using the search), but how much does the Fender Geddy Lee bass weigh?

    According to my bathroom scale, about 9lbs.

    I would say about 9lbs. Heavier than my Fender P, but lighter than my Bongo 5.

    I'd say soaking wet he is probably about 90 pounds... 95 with that 80s hair.

    I thought mine was heavy which contributed to my getting rid of it. Then yesterday i played a Lakland skyline that had to weigh at least 12 pounds which actually made me appreciate the weight of my other instruments.

    I just got rid of my Geddy .
    It's weight played a factor with my decision to part with it.
    I don't own anything over 8 lbs. And I won't.

    That last post made me think of all the guys who refuse to lug a SVT from their car to the stage but will hold a 12lb bass around their neck all night. I don't get it.

    Can't believe it!!! I always get chided for being "underweight", ....135 lbs. at 5'10" ...and I'm 53 ... YET ... my bass is an ancient Peavey T-4O from around 1980, weighing in at 14 lbs. and change, and I have NO PROBLEM wearing it .... (unless I'm not well-rested) .... But I believe the key is not having a gut , which I don't, to create that awful stress on the lower back .... flat stomach is key!!!

    5"10 (which I am) and 135 pounds is what I was when I was smoking crack! Real talk!!! 5'10 and 135 pounds you don't have much else besides not having a flat stomach......:)

    Someone revived a dead 4-year-old thread to talk about having a flat stomach? Where's that "zombie thread" pic?

    Sorry to revive an old thread, but is the Geddy heavier than a normal MIA Jazz? Thanks.
