2022 SG Standard 61 weighs in at 6 lbs. 3.4 oz.
I wonder how many SG standard 61’s they plan on making before changing something up a little. I guess people just gravitate towards them. I’ve got no complaints on my end. They sound great.

Hey, we all know the SG and its clones are among the lighter guitars - and some of us like me really like that point - but I'm curious what the range in weight among SG's actually is.

If you know the weight of your SG, please let me know. For example my SG copies weigh 7 lbs 8 oz, and 8 lb. 2 oz.

Thanks in advance.
2020 Gibson '61 SG Standard weighs 6.34 lbs.

Interesting, it seems all the '61's are fairly light and consistent from example to example. My 2021 CME Standard is 6.4lb. Lightest guitar I've ever played. That 6lb special though, that's crazy light.

2009 Gibson 61 SG - 6 lbs 6 oz
2021 Gibson SG jr - 5 lbs 4 oz

And yes the Jr is so light and fun to play. Almost like not even having a guitar on your shoulder.

Just picked uy my first gibson sg, a 2022 tribute, weighs 6.1 pounds. Amazing guitar, feels perfect with the rounded c neck. I just cant get along with the 60s sg necks, too flat.

My 2020 61 Standard weighs 6.6 pounds.
However, my newly acquired 2005 limited edition classic white standard with installed Maestro Vibrola comes in at 8.4 pounds.
