I picked up a cabronita style (ash) body on the cheap for a future build. Unfortunately, when I got it and weighed the thing it hit the scales right at 8 pounds. Yikes. Add another 3 pounds or so for neck and hardware and we would be talking some serious heft. Aside from the weight, the body is well constructed and quite nice. I suppose I could drill under the pickguard. Maybe tummy and forearm cuts (which would take some work). Not sure if that would make enough difference. Suggestions for how to approach this?
