Exactly why I put together my mongrelcaster with its Paulownia body. My 1993 Tele is 8 lbs, my PRS SE One is 8 lbs, my Grote 335 is 8 lbs......and even with a well padded Levy's strap, on a rehearsal or gig I just suffered. But when I built my 5 lb "Taz", I was able to get the weight down, get the precise neck dimensions I wanted, and install my perfect Bootstrap Pickups. I'm not one to accumulate or collect a bunch of guitars.....when I find the right one, I'm good.I'm going to a band rehearsal.. yeah... good times
I wanted to break out the big guns.
I dug these out... problem is...
Way too heavy for 63 year old FG.
So...I'm at a crossoads.
Why hang onto something that's too heavy to play?
What drag it is...getting old.
These are two older Epi's and the one on the right is newer with coil splitting. The other two are early 2000 made in the Unsung Factory.
