Re: Ideal weight for an Alder Jem? Ideal weight for a Basswood Jem?
I'm new here and don't own a JEM...YET but I do know a thing or 2 about guitar weight. If you want to get a true perspective of weights of guitars, do what I do, play a bluegrass banjo for awhile that weighs a ton due to a massive bell-brass tone ring. After you do that pick up whatever guitar you want and it'll feel as light as a feather, I guarantee it! But I agree that tone is king and you learn to deal with the rest! Just my $.02 worth.
