I have an SB-2 Tribute and I love the feel and tone. It's a kick-a** P-bass as those of you on this forum know. The only problem is at 9 lbs, it's just a little heavy. Not bad, but I wish it were a pound lighter. I've had back surgery and have arthritis in my neck, so lighter weight is a good thing for me. Is there a certain year(s) or model (USA vs Tribute) that are known to be lighter? Or do they randomly vary in weight like some other brands? I may buy another one if it were the right one. I'm not sure, but I believe mine is around a 2003 vintage. I have a comfort strapp on it which helps. And, I know I could also mod it with things like ultralite tuners but I'd rather not do that.
