I saw this on CL..... $499
I guess this is one way...
Yeah, that probably got the weight down to about 11 lbs!
I was gonna come here and say "with a firm grip and by lifting with the legs". But you can do that too.
"Over-weight T40" seems redundant.

To test the weight reduction, I'd like to beat the perpetrator of that "work" with this bass and see if he survives.
I'd have routed out the back without cutting through the face of the body so at least it looked solid from the front-- of course leaving appropriate thickness where needed. Actually I'd have none nothing, but if someone put a gun to my head...
HOLY T-40 BATMAN!?!
This is probably the result of a hasty, poor decision dealing with a very sore back on a Monday after a full weekend of gigging with it...
I would first assure it that it is beautiful regardless of its weight and society's expectations. I would then ask it to join me for a drink.
There oughta be a law!
ha! i actually don't mind the look of the T-40 in the OP. different strokes.
Is it weird that I would rather go in the other direction entirely and replace the neck with one made of solid aluminum?
Here's the stupid thing...
Many people's grandpa or someone they knows grandpa have a woodworking shop of some sort and always looking for something to do. Instead of wasting all that time and devaluing a bass, all they had to do was go to grandpa and ask him to copy the body build a lighter replacement. Grandpa would happily be all over that!
Why is it so hard to figure out that if you're gonna route a bass body, you route UNDER THE PICKGUARD!!
Not the back, not random holes everywhere! You route under the pickguard so it maintains its visual presentation, but sheds some weight.
Why didn't you just route under the pickguard?
It's super funny that they drilled THROUGH the pick guard, hahaha.
Guy bringing his bass in to a tech: Can you weight relieve my T-40
Guy with the T-40: Great! I'll be back in 15 minutes to pick it up!
Tech: No problem!
I wonder if you could plane both sides of the body and glue on a layer of wood front and back.
Sell it or trade it off.
