Guitar playing is now weight training LOL
Still w/ the Bathroom scale method ???
Wash a 12 foot sub down with a 12 pack of beer.
Well, it definitely is with this one, anyway!
NIce Blonde !! I just got My BSB CV Squier today !!!
Congrats! I know you're gonna dig it! I love that BSB finish.
You win, thats about 5 lbs. over my limit.
When I bought it (two years ago at GC), I realized it was heavy, but I just assumed they were all pretty hefty - as the weight issue of CV 50's was talked about a lot here at TDPRI at the time - so I didn't really think too much about it..
But as time went on, I realized that I had definitely gotten one of the more heavier ones..
Mine is by far and away the heaviest electric guitar I've ever owned. But, I liked the way it played and sounded. So, I bought it. I've gotten used to it. But it is an anchor. I'm thinking about giving my luthier the photo of the prototype in the Fender book, that has the body cored-out below the pickguard to reduce weight. If I ever considered doing that to a Tele, this would be a good candidate.
I don't have anything to weigh mine with - I'd call mine medium weight to slightly heavy, but not a boat anchor by any means.
Wish I still had my CV50 to weigh, it felt in the 10 lb range as well! Pine bodies are a little extra on the weight, but extra sweet on the ears as well!
Thats why its showing such a heavy weight thats not the best way to get an accurate weight. You can make the weight change 1-2 lbs just by shifting your feet around.
See if you can get a weight on some accurate scales like digital fishing scales or digital postal scales.
Im sure it feels heavy but I bet once its got an accurate weight it will be around the high 8lb or low 9lb range.
I attempted sarcasm to get the same point across, but it seemed to fall on deaf ears.....
On digital postal scale:
CV50 BSB = 7lb 6oz
CVC = 7lb 4oz
CV50 Strat = 7lb 1oz
Mine are CVC 7lbs 2oz CV50's VB 7lbs 13oz
My CV 50's is running toward the upper end of 7 lbs. Something like 7 and 12 or 14 oz's. But if you have a good wide shoulder strap, most any heavy guitar's weight can be dispersed efficiently.
My CVC is 7lbs 2oz. There is a dealer here in the area that has a CV50 that feels even lighter. I liked to have thrown it over my head when I picked it up. I almost got down on my knees and begged my wife (who just bought me a S-style Kirn Custom) to put it on layaway. If that booger is still there in a few weeks I am so going to put it on layaway and take my beating like a man...
