I have a digital scale and I'm not afraid to use it. Also, it was a slow evening. That's a bad combination. After starting this thread, I decided to try and collect information on the weights of a range of bases...so I came back and modified the thread title and this post. The weights of my basses in pounds and ounces from lightest to heaviest: Applause AE-40 ABG: 4.1 Rogue VB-100 Beatle Bass: 6.1 Kay KB-2 SG-clone: 6.4 Univox 335-copy hollowbody: 7.8 Jay Turser JTB-401 '54 P clone: 7.9 (with 11 oz of weight added in the bridge cover for balance) Epiphone EB-0: 8.1 1963 P-bass: 8.3 (with bridge and pickup covers) 2000 MIM Jazz: 9.1 (with bridge and pickup covers) P-Special custom fretless: 9.1 OLP M22: 9.7 Not a real boat anchor in the list. But I can definitely feel the difference between the three heaviest and the rest. Those of you who have basses weighing over 10 pounds have my sympathy. Tell me what your basses weigh - and over time, I'll build a spreadsheet with the data. EDITED TO ADD: Please help me by giving me clear, easy to read information. Don't abbreviate ANYthing...I don't know what "DIY P bass" means. Also, "Jay Turser" or "Rogue" is not helpful unless you include the model ('54 P clone or JTB-401). And I don't know what a Fender "ADPV" or "ADJV" means. Please understand that I don't know the names of private maker or boutique basses, and that abbreviations more unusual than "Fender MIM" probably are not clear to me. Please give me: Manufacturer - Specific Model - Year (if known) - Mods - Weight (pounds/ounces) Example: Jay Turser - JTB-401 - 2007 - 6.1 pounds Example: Fender - USA Jazz Re-issue - Year unknown - X pounds If I don't understand what you're telling me, I can't include it in the spreadsheet. And I will interpret 6.25 pounds as 6 pounds, 4 ounces. 13.5 pounds is 13 pounds, 8 ounces. Thanks!
