not too long ago, i bought a digital scale so i could get accurate weights for a few guitars that i was selling. the trend i've noticed lately is that buyers are really keen on wanting to know what a particular guitar weighs (to the extent that buyers will pass on an otherwise good deal because they can't get an accurate weight from the seller). so i caved and found one on eBay for about $30.
... and i started weighing these guitars; some of which i thought were light and some i thought were on the heavier side. some i was right about, but others i was not. and two guitars i thought were significantly different from each other in terms of weight were actually within an ounce of each other!
anyone else notice this?
do you have a perfect weight for a guitar? if so, what is it? if not, why? too busy playing to give a shit?
have you found over the years that based on a number of factors (including ergonomics, body shape, neck width and position of strap buttons, etc.) that different guitars can feel heavier or lighter regardless of their actual weight?
