How much does a JS10th weigh exactly?

Anybody got a spec sheet?

You see, I'm getting a new guitar that weighs 10 pounds. It's so heavy people complain about it. I'm just wondering if it's heavier than the shiny boat anchor I currently play.

Thanks!

It is Bill. Since the 10th is made from luthite, it's even lighter than an actual wood body JS. IIRC, yours felt a little lighter than my PRM (when I had it).

How's your 10th looking like these days?

The tenths are heavier than the wood JSs. Not as bad as the Crystal Planet but heavy for a JS.

Oh it hasn't changed much, but the chrome is a little worn around the jack... Word to the wise: don't plug in by feel.

Whenever I see a picture of a tenth I think, I want one of those, even though I have two, but they always look so much shinier in the pictures than mine do in person. Probably just the camera flash.

I do use a flannel cloth on mine whenever I take a pic of it.

Still sounds good too.

It's way heavier than my Rickenbacker 360, my wife's strat, or her SA-160. The only heavier guitar I have now is my bass, which is made of bubinga.

So did you finally get tired of owning a guitar you couldn't touch? I remember you offering to buy mine, even when you had your PRM, so I figured it must be getting to you.

I have one that I bought damaged that I play and one that's mint that I don't touch. No room to sell any of them, sorry.
