Maybe an inspector noted too heavy of undercoat sprayed on ?
That's a great story.
Kinda reminds me of a body I bought from Warmoth, T body, full price of $ 149.00 plus shipping, and when I opened up the packing, in the pickup rout it said
UGLY. In pencil - I didn't see it at first.
I do think it was the same body shown on the Gallery Page - they just shot the image in such a way, you couldn't tell.
Wow, does something like that, ever work on your mind. By the time I was done, this Warmoth body, yes, was the ugliest thing I'd ever bought. Thanks, guys! Thanks for charging me full price and then telling me "Ha-ha Sucker!!"
Not a "dumb long story", very interesting!
BTW, I think my Am Pro 2020 is close to 9lbs.
OP - Beautiful Tele and great story! I have 2 ash teles that probably go 8+ pounds. Frequently IME, heavy guitars have been very resonant. Enjoy that guitar...!!
About twelve years or so ago, I inserted a fortune cookie message into wiring canal of my CV Tele.
Can't remember what it says and I haven't been in there since.
should be fun for maybe a next owner.
That's heavy man!
i also saw this one is 8.94 lbs. its really surprised me that ash can vary so much, from 6 to 9 lbs for exactly the same size!
i just dont know should i lol or feel sad..
it reminds me that one of my friend, he tells everyone how ugly his newborn daughter is, but we all see so so so much that he loves her. maybe you are gonna love it someday and somehow?
Probably northern Ash instead of the much sought after swamp ash. Northern ash can be notoriously heavy. I had an Ibanez RG470 with an ash body and I ended up selling it because it was quite heavy.
Is your bridge pickup too heavy?
And, if so, in what way?
Magnet weight or output?
I'm just thinking you jumped too quickly to the conclusion that the label was referring to the body.
P.S. It's a very good looking guitar. A keeper.
Beautiful guitar. I have one its maroon color and is heavy. After about 3 hours of playing the shoulder can't stand it no more. Mine is not made of ash l forget the wood but its heavy.
Great story, great looking guitar, and GREAT name.
You know that's not normal.
It's better than normal.
I agree with the rest, such a cool story and a really nice guitar!
Instruments! Gotta love ‘em!
The stories those guitars can tell. Man they’re great!
Glad you’re happy with the axe.
I once had a guitar that was too heavy, until i took the strap off and sat down to play it. Problem solved.
oh i've never thought on that way before! thank you for the idea. im gonna try figure it out
Fun story. Nothing else to add except that I used to live right around the corner from Willcut on Pin Oak and loved strolling down to look at the guitars. I bought a couple of effects pedals there, but couldn't afford anything as nice as you got. There was another little store on Rosemont Garden near the tracks that seemed to specialize in Gretsch guitars, but the guy always gave the "what the hell do YOU want" vibe.
Here was my solution for my '67 Tele being too heavy! RRO
Yep, that's a great story. I would definitely call her "Too Heavy" from now on.
This is a great story and way to go with documenting it. She sure is beautiful. As I was building my Tele, I tried to do that Blond kinda Whitewash finish but couldn’t get the technique down. So I just made up my own color and finished it with Gun Stock Oil. Anyhow, love your story. Thanks.
