Yamaha BB235 weight?

  1. Evening friendly folk of talkbass.
    Just a quick query for those of you that own the newer Yamaha BB series, in particular the BB235. How heavy are they? The only reason I ask is that I can't find that info anywhere online, and I've just purchased one not really knowing the weight. This wouldn't be much of a problem but I'm in the process of being diagnosed with a degenerative spinal condition, so knowing whether this bass would cripple me even more or not would be muchos appreciated!
  2. I played one today and I would say it was hovering around 9 lbs (+/- 0.5 lb).

    In case anyone was wondering.. the wilkinson 6 screw bridge with brass saddles is a direct fit on the Yamaha BB235.
