Hi all! I have a G&L Kiloton Tribute that weighs 4.67kg (10.3lbs). It hurts... I have a G&L SB-2 Tribute that weighs around 4.2kg, with the same body shape and similar hardware (in terms of weight). Ironically, I expected the Kiloton to be lighter then SB-2 because it's basswood, while SB-2 is Mahogany So, my question is: what do you think about taking the paint off, thinning out (and possibly sculpting) the body a bit, and repainting? I'd try to take the most mass by thinning it out. I think it only makes sense if I take at least 350 grams of. I might then invest in lighter tuners to get another 100ish grams off, for a total of 450 grams. Now, if the body weighs around 3kg (is this a reasonable assumption?) and I want to take let's say 400 grams off, that's around 13% off. Let's call it 15%. The body is 42mm thick, without the solid paint that might 40mm (I'm assuming this). So I'd need to take 40mm * 0.15 = 6mm. That seems quite a lot... Considering the neck cavity, PU cavity, PU screws etc... It might just not be feasable... Am I thinking in the wrong direction?
