Mine is 7.59 pounds. The lightest bass I own by about a half pound. Not sure what you are asking, but the tone of this bass is the most focused I have regardless of scale length. It's definitely a Stingray-ish sound. Unmistakable there. But, it is more cutting in the lower mids, less scooped, less boomy, and less extreme-high-end-y. It sits in the band mix, at least to my ears, with sort of a narrower focus on the "money frequencies" for bass. You will be heard with this bass without having to crank it and get a deluge of rumbling mud like you do with some basses when you can't hear yourself and try to make up for it by increasing the volume. You won't need to crank this bass way up to be heard. It's kind of hard to describe... just a "tighter" sound I guess. And this is regardless of the tone setting--all settings sound good regardless of tone and coil switch settings. I can't get a bad tone out of this bass from the bass itself. The only way to get a bad tone is by goofing your amp settings up or... having a lousy soundman.
