One piece mahogany body weight?

Two pieces of wood of the same species will vary in weight.



+1. It also depends a lot on the thickness of the body. LPs are really heavy because their bodies are 2ish inches thick. A guitar body that is only 1.25" thick with a compact shape (compact like an SG) will usually be fairly light (unless it is made of solid ebony or something similarly heavy).


Mahogany is a pretty light instrument wood overall, but certain species (like african mahogany/sapele) can be a little heavier.
