    I was wondering, does anyone know what year they started making the 4001 models lighter? It seems like everyone I've know who owned one said that there's was very heavy...but mine's only about 9lbs (a '79 model). just wondering.

    Since they are all handmade, the weight is only determined by the density of the wood and how it gets finished. I currently have 6 Rics and they are all different. Each one has a different weight.
