Hi all! I’m very excited about getting an S Prestige in February, and having back and shoulder pain, I’m hoping this guitar will be significantly lighter than other guitars I’ve owned.
Would anyone who owns an S Prestige w/ a trem be kind enough to tell me how much yours weighs? The lightest guitar I ever owned was a Carvin Allan Holdsworth H2, and that was maybe 5 & 1/2 to 6 pounds. Thanks for any input guys!!

Mine weighs 7 lbs. 3 0z. I weighed mine on a postal scale

I'll try to remember to see if I can find something more accurate than a bathroom scale to weigh mine at the studio tonight, but I can offer that it really feels like it's hardly even there. I did add a brass trem block which is much heavier than the stock one, but no difference in how the guitar carries or feels for me.

Which one are you getting? I'm really happy with my S-5570 and just can't believe they aren't more popular, which I say as an RG and JEM owner. My S-5570 is everything I ever wanted in an electric.

I’m thinking of getting the S6570Q. But then I found out that there are 2 new Prestige models with stainless steel frets, and now I’m kind of torn, because I love stainless frets!

I hope they start putting stainless frets on the whole Prestige and JEM lineup.

If you have shoulder/back problems, don't get a Jackson USA tele. That thing weighs a ton. It's heavier than my bass (SR-405).
