Just found out my fender jazz geddy lee bass weighs 5.1 kgs! Yikes!
So what does ur bass weigh?
Just bought a Geddy in Ebay, the seller said it.weighs 9 pounds
heavyweight bass heavyweight tone
Ltd Deluxe B-1005 - 9 lbs
Squier VM Fretless P - 7 lbs
Squier VM Jazz V - 10.6 lbs
Fender MP Jaguar - 9.4 lbs
Have a great weekend,
Spector NS-20004 (my current avatar is me playing it), 11.5 lbs.
Spector Legend Custom 5: 10.5 lbs
None of my other basses come close. I think most of my other basses (Squier Jazzes, a Bass VI, Rickenbacker 4001 and a couple of other little oddities) are 9 lbs or less. I don't usually worry about them. The Spectors I have to have very special straps for because I personally only weigh about 155 lbs . . .
You should've made a poll. The results would have been interesting. My Gamma Beta is just over 8 pounds. My mustang about the same.
My two main basses weigh in at:
3.9Kg -5 string 36" alder body maple neck rosewood board.
3.8Kg -'51 style P bass with alder body and rosewood fingerboard.
My honeyburst P is like 7.5 lbs. It is SUPER light.
Holy crap. You either have a strong back or a good stool.
yeah, she's a killer. i play originals so sets are normally only 30-40 minutes, an hour tops
i sit to play at home.
if i was doing 4 hour gigs i'd be getting something else or a better strap
Here's a great thread:
never really mattered to me till my shoulder started giving up mid way through long sets! lots of pain! not pretty! got a gruv gear duo strap now.. will be getting a lighter bass in the future when i can.. though that seems difficult for now, for many reasons including and besides $$
cool thread! thanks!
didnt show on the mobile app search somehow!
Mine weighs in at just over 8 lbs.
Mike Lull M5V - 8.5 lbs
Lakland Skyline 55-64 - 9.5 lbs
ESP LTD B205-SM Fretless - 9 lbs
Peavey Sarzo Signature - 9.5 lbs
I prefer lighter basses.
Most basses I keep for an extended period of time weight in
between 7.5 lbs- 8.5 lbs.
I never go over 9 lbs. TJM
My main bass, a Line 6 Variax 5 string, weighed 13lbs. After it was damaged in a truck accident, I rebuilt it, and chambered it, and got it down to 9 lbs. Far better.
I would also add that chambering the bass had no effect on sustain or any other effect on the operation of the bass.
FBB Bassworks medium scale. 7.75 lbs of sexy thump.
Both hollow bodies weigh in at 8.0 lbs.
51/ 55 P Bass is 8.5 lbs.
Warmoth build is 9.0 lbs.
Custom G&L ASAT comes in at 9.5 lbs.
My ESP LTD B206-SM is the heaviest bass I own 12 lbs. 4 Oz.
(Heavy bass, heavy tone...it's a KILLER bass!)
Conklin 7 string is runner up at 12 lbs even.
Lightest is my Chinese "Harmonia" 6 string fretless ABG at 5 lbs 11 Oz.
Runner-up is my Carvin AC50 fretless semi-hollow body 6 lbs 7 oz.
It's killer in it's own way too!
