It ain’t heavy
It’s my brother
Crap! You beat me to it!
is this for a b-bender device or somthing? it looks so hurt! if i have to do an operation on the body i gonna try the smuggler style maybe.
"He's not heavy.... he's my brother..."
That's a lightweight guitar at that weight...
...my 1980 Gibson Les Paul Artisan (Norlin era) tips the fat scale at 13lbs 6oz
You got a mini light super easy to hold axe...
You could go with: "2 Heavy" or maybe "Phat Ash".
I remember a conversation with Chihoe Hahn when I ordered my Hahn Model C where he said "you don't want a super light guitar,mid 7s sound better" That's his philosophy...I think anything in the seven pound range is great..Good luck getting a Jazzmaster in the sevens!
Yeah, the mere "displacement" of the body on the Jazzmaster (or j-type bodies with other routing) adds maybe 18 ounces right there.
Oh, and Mr. Hahn's opinions, they do carry a lot of "weight" with me also. :^)
Swamp ash is lighter than northern ash but is becoming more scarce, so Fender has stopped using ash except for their most expensive models.
I have a parts caster made of cedar and it is definitely a lightweight body. Sounds fine.
I have two 2020 swamp ash Fender Am Pro Teles and they weigh 6.7 and 6.9 lbs. BTW, I always change the bridges on Teles from the 3 saddle bridges to 6 saddle bridges.
There is swamp ash which is lighter than hard ash. It is the same species except it grows in the south. On these trees, part of the tree is submerged under water part of the year. The cells of the tree that are submerged swell and expand and absorb water.The previously submerged section of wood either grows above the waterline or the water recedes due to changing seasons. The water drains out of the wood but the expanded cell structure remains and is lighter than in the denser wood of hard ash trees that don't grow in these wet climates.
My Troublemaker Tele is a heavy so-and-so. I've been using a leather strap which has been doing the trick for the few months since I bought the guitar, but increased shoulder pain tells me I should start looking at another strap. Any recommendations?
Thats a beautiful guitar. Heavy is the new Les Paul Standard i just bought. 10lbs. wow. Wanna trade? lol
Reminds me of the football player Brian Bosworth. While in college he worked at a car factory and every once in a while would leave a Coke bottle inside a car bumper for fun. What a guy.
Like the knobs ... a lil here a lil there a lil everywhere if ya want to lighten up ... a small digital scale bought begged or borrowed ... an oz here a few more there ... it ads up ....
