    I just had spinal (lumbar) surgery. My doc told me not to lift anything over 8.5 lbs. for a month and be really careful, building up for a couple months after that. There aren't many things more unwieldy than lifting a bottom heavy bass into position from the stand, while sitting in a chair. Soooooo.

    Weighing in at a mighty 6 lbs. 14.5 oz.!! Bronco Weight.jpg

    VS.

    My main stable: all at 9 lbs. 6 oz. or greater!

    I am loving this little bass! My first short scale! It'll probably never leave the house, but I have put in hours on it in the last couple days!

    Cool little basses with a nice setup. Love the sound with mild dirt and a heavy pick.

    Hmm, mine comes in at 7.8 lbs. It's a 2012. Wonder why such a difference?

    That's a real nice weight for your present circumstances. My 2019 Shell Pink Bronc is 6lb 10oz.......
    As for the weight of Broncos....... my experience is that they're all over the place. Lightest I've owned was 6lb 7oz, whilst the heaviest was 8lb 10oz (IIRC). I think it's just whatever wood they have to produce them.
    Currently, I have a Squier Jaguar SS weighing 6lb 13oz, while the heaviest was an unbelievable 9lbs!! As one that also deals with structural issues, the lighter the better!! Keep on keepin' on!!!
