http://www.everythingsg.com/threads/my-sg-8-lbs-weighs-more-than-my-strat.36884/#post-538160 In another thread I showed all my SGs, my Strat, Les Paul Custom and their weight(s). Here are some more of mine and their weight(s). N225-8 lb. 4 oz. Epi LP Standard-7 lb. 13 oz. Epi Riviera P93-9 lb. Dot Deluxe-8 lb. 2 1/2 oz. Wildkat-8 lb. LPJ-8 lb. 12 oz. T-bird-9 lb. 7 oz. LP Melody Makers left-7 lb. 6 oz. right-7 lb. 11 1/2 oz. Now I play all of these, but lately the Goldtop and the Riviera get a lot of play as I rebuild some strength and dexterity. The T-bird bass is the only bass guitar I've ever liked enough to play for fun and keep in my remuda. Here's the thing: I know a lot of metal and rockabilly guys say that "Heavier always sounds better" but I can't say that I like one any better than the others. I cannot convince myself that the LPJ sounds better or worse than the Epi Standard. I don't think the LP Custom is louder, or brighter or more resonant than the waspish SG faded cherry Special. What do you think? Does more weight equal bigger or better sound?
