    Hi, I seen there are some of the members on this forum that owns the new Epiphone Thunderbird Vintage Pro Bass.I thinking of buying one since they have got very good feedback from buyers.I had a Gibson 1976 Bicentical T-Bird some years ago that sounded very good and had descent weight also around 3,8kg.I halso had a Japan Made Epiphone Elitist that was a good build and all but it was around 4,1kg that one.I know they can vary from to bass to bass but just to get a indicator in wish weight area these new ones are.Over 4kg is not what i want under would be ideal or max 4kgs.

    Haven't weighed mine, but I'm surprised how light it is given it's size.

    My T-Bird Vintage Pro weights 9.2 lbs or 4.1 kg and that's with the chrome hand rest covers on it. Remove them and it's about 8.5 lbs or 3.85 kg.

    Check with Sweetwater.com they list the weight of each bass. I think I recall the early models coming in around 7 to 8 lbs, though I may be mistaken.

    They have gotten heavier 9-10 lbs. range. You might find a lighter
    new one but the early ones tend to be lighter.

    I've noticed that. I wonder why? Seems they would have gotten LIGHTER with the smaller tuners and such.
