My first CV 50s was 9 lbs. I sold it.
My second was 6.8 lbs. I kept it. Lesson learned!
3.1 kilo / 6.8 pounds (6lb 13oz) of speaker-pumping, joint thumping, chicken-pickin' funk something awesomosity on the grocery store scale!
I LOVE THIS GUITAR
I got my CV 50 about three weeks ago, and knew it was heavy, but haven't weighed it all put together yet. I did a three hour practise the other day and didn't have any problems with the weight, so maybe I shouldn't worry.
Still, I have it all apart right now for a few mods, better wiring, etc. and I got curious. I took all of the hardware off of the body except for the string ferrules, and weighed the body on a home postal scale: 5.6 lbs. Hmmm...
How heavy are these poly finishes?
I'm real curious now -- I'll put it all on the scale tonight and post back.
8lbs 8 oz....digital postal scale, minus the neck pickup but with a big neck. I bought a freight damaged body (no neck) for cheap and esquired it. 1 oz lighter than my Les Paul Copy...
I edited my above post -- the digital display was messed up last night on the scale.
Ok, here goes, and I weighed some other guitars for comparison:
CV50: 8.2 lbs
Gretsch Anniversary: 8.0 lbs
'80's 62 RI Strat: 8.1 lbs
Daughter's cheap Chinese Strat: 5.8 lbs (feels SO light, like balsa)
Bottom line, the CV is right in the ballpark with the others in my stable, so I'm not going to worry about it. The ASAT Tribute with thinline body I just sold was nice and light, but the neck would head to the floor if I used a smooth strap.
bloody hell you cissies... man up . a tele should carry a bit of authority on the strap lends gravitas to the tone . why do you think a thinline sounds well... thin .. my cv feels nicely balanced . and sounds magnificent
