Re: A few questions about the RG1527
My '03 UV weighs 7.3 lbs
My FP '15 weighs 7.1 lbs
I always knew my UV had a really light body, and even with the wider neck and trem it still only weighs 7.3 lbs. The FP 15th feels light too and it clocked in a 7.1
I always assumed these guitars were American Basswood because in '03 the UV was specified as American Basswood, I also assume that my 15th FP is American because it is an '03 guitar as well and it is light.
I'm guessing that the change to Asian Basswood probably happened the same time the necks were switched to multi-piece.
