    I posted this question a couple months ago, but I thought I’d post again to get some more people weighing in (pun intended). If you have an Ultra, especially the Texas Tea finish, how much does it weigh? Thanks.

    Mine is 7 lb 14 oz. Doesn’t feel heavy to me.

    So enlighten me to this Teas Tea color. Fender website appears to be black, but it has a gold metal flake?

    Correct. The gold sparkle gives it a sheen similar to crude oil, aka Texas Tea. It is very classy and presents as gloss black under normal room lighting.
