mine is 2007 and if anything its gotten heavier, lol
Maybe it's soaking up your sweat like a dry, thirsty sponge.
no i play so fast (near the speed of light) it actually gains mass.
Using a digital scale:
1963 SG Special = 6lbs 0oz.
1998 SG Standard = 6lbs 12oz.
2112 SG Standard = 6lbs 5oz.
yup. this is why I store my guitars in a close orbit of a black hole-keeps them looking brand new, in fact every ten minutes the guitar ages near the black hole I age 10,000 years.
i bought my twin reverb to play on the moon where it only weigs 12lbs.
Light enough to put on and play
6 weeks after a quintuple bypass.
Light enough to go out and play
a gig 8 weeks after the operation.
As Randy Quaid said in Independence Day:
Good. I was wondering how long you would be off the bandstand. Play on! Heal up!
'03 Gibson Faded Special: 7lb. 2oz.
'98 Epiphone G-400 modified: 6lb. 7oz.
'03 Epiphone G-400 Vintage: 7lb. 2oz.
'05 Epiphone G-400 Deluxe V 8lb. 2oz.
The top three are all equipped with Kluson style tuners . if the '05 were so equipped the weight would go down to about 7lb. 12oz., the tailpiece accounting for a good deal of weight as well .
which tuners are heavy? I have the green ones, whatever they are
These tuners !
are those grovers? how much do gotoh weigh? I assume mine are gotoh since kluson went out of business in the 70s IIRC
Great tuners! I'm planning on installing them on my SG. The Gibson Originals keep going out of tune, especially on a daily basis.
Hey, pm me. I want your Gibsons ! I'll pay in real money, no loonies, I swear !I'll send you the Chinese lead weights ! We can work it out !
Well that sounds like an idea. I'll think about it, but one tuner is somewhat broken. Right now I have 3 Gibson deluxes and 3 Grovers (other kind with tulip peg like Gibson's). I'll take a picture after I take them off which might be a little while now because of other guitar projects. Sure, no problema!
thats cool man, those Berkerly scales are pretty accurate.
I'll have to pick that Berkerly scale up some time. I want to get a more accurate readings. I don't trust the readings I get on my current scale.
customized Gibson SG Standard Limited (2011): 3.2 kg = 7.0 lbs
customized Epiphone SG (2005): 3.8 kg = 8.3 lbs
I just sold a Classic that was super light / 6lb2oz
My other Classic is 7 lb 2.4oz ... I think it sounds a tad better than the one above.
I have a Standard that is really light - 6lb 4 oz
62 Reissue ... I forget but it's something like 6 lb 7 oz
I have another 62 RI on the way but the guy didn't tell me the weight. I hope it's a light one.
