Jem555 Really heavy in weight?

I have a Jem555 and it's really heavy not in sound but weight. I have picked up other Jems in shops, for example the new seafoam green one, and they seem much lighter than mine, I know it must be something to do with the type of wood used but why would there be such a difference in weight ? I'm hoping a Jem expert on here could help me

Re: Jem555 Really heavy in weight?

The jem70v and jem555 both use basswood bodies, perhaps the weight is produced depending on what part of the tree the wood was taken from? Otherwise i have no clue, but maybe the basswood contains different traits compared to the 70v's american basswood.
Hope that helps
