    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:
    "I'm baaaack!"

    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 .

    Great tuners! I'm planning on installing them on my SG. The Gibson Originals keep going out of tune, especially on a daily basis.:(

    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!:fingersx:

    ^
    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.

    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

    :dunno:

    I have another 62 RI on the way but the guy didn't tell me the weight. I hope it's a light one. :mad:
