    I had a Korean '98 that was around 8lb. Didn't keep it long. 9.2 is unheard of.

    A 2004 ? Is it a Vintage with the gold logo ?

    I have 2 SGs and they are pretty light. I already weighted them on a postal scale and took pics for my SG folder. The first is a 62 reissue historic and it came in at 6lbs, 5.6 ounces. The second is a SG Classic that I sold but it was super light at 6lbs, 2 ounces.

    I own one other 62 historic and one other unplayed NOS SG Classic. If I remember right they are both hovering around 7 lbs. I should weigh them and update my records.

    My new one just arrived from eBay... weighed in at 6lbs 14.5oz. Swapped in a TP-6 tailpiece because I like how they look and now it is right at 7lbs.

    Mine is an Epiphone Faded G-400, and it comes in around 6 pounds 12 ounces.

    I created an account and revived this thread just to say: I went on Sweetwater to see what some other G-400 specimens were weighing in at, and of the 4 serials online, there is one at 3 pounds 15 ounces and another at 3 pounds 4 ounces. Beautiful guitars, but that's got to be some terrible neck dive!

    EDIT -- OOPS THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE IN RESPONSE TO POST BY 58pit, not Aaron19

    When I was 16 working a summer job one of the guys asked if I wanted to go with him to Taco Bell for lunch. I said 'sure' and when we got in the car he grabbed a box from the back and asked me to hold it, had to drop it off somewhere.

    As we drove off he told me that there was 1/4 pound of weed in the box. I learned two things that day: 1/4 pound of weed is a LOT of weed. And never to go to lunch with that guy again. I am sure he was totally ready to claim he had no idea what was in the box that I brought into his car if he ended up getting pulled over. No doubt in my mind that's why I was there.
