  1. Well?

    My Harmony is 9 pounds even. Just wondering how that compares to other basses.

    And no, this isn't the same thread as the other "bass weight" one. :D
     
  2. well, i'm not sure. but i just picked up my ESP/LTD and then picked up a ten lb. weight i found on my floor:)confused: ) and the bass was a little bit less. so i voted 9-11.
     
  3. Lol, put it on a scale you dork. :D

    My RIC weighs in at 9lbs.
     
  5. Oh, alright. If a $1,000 bass weighs the same as my cheap one, at least I know my bass isn't overly heavy.

    Now..as for the tone... :D

    My Elrick weighs around 7lbs.. maybe alittle less.. My stingray weighed 10 or 11lbs..
     
  9. I'm not sure either. I picked up both my basses and then compared them to a 35 lb dumbell in my room. Together, they both weigh MUCH less than the dumbell. So... I don't know how much they weigh.
