Finally got around to properly weighing this one and then weighed some others hanging around the house. Partcaster Esquire homebrew with Swamp Ash body came in at 6 lbs. 10 oz. Assuming it balances properly when you play it...How heavy is too heavy? How light is too light? For reference (I do have pics of these but didn't add to this post): - Fender White Blonde MIM 50s Esquire: 6 lbs. 13 oz. - Fender MIJ CAR Esquire 60s: 7 lbs. 3 oz. - Reverend Club King 2-90: 7 lbs. 13 oz. (doesn't feel heavy when I play it) - Cypress Guitars Tele clone: 8 lbs. 4 oz. - Squier VM PJ Bass: 7 lbs. 4 oz. (seems like most of this is neck weight) and just for fun...acoustic! - Martin D-28: 4 lbs. 11 oz. --- What do you all think? Somewhere around 7-7 1/2 lbs. seems like the right weight? Does anybody have a Tele under 6 lbs? Under 5 lbs? --- Oh, and Jerry's Tiger guitar was 13 lbs. 8 oz. right? Ouch!
