Nobody wants a 12 pound guitar.
I see. Glad to finally find out who makes these decisions.
my cover has been blown. dang it.
This guy played a 12# plus guitar and it KILLED him.
Well, there might have been some other factors, but don't think for a second it didn't play a part.
Guy makes thread complaining about folks asking for weight. Guy that makes thread then complains and is rude to everyone that replies to thread and doesn't agree with him.
Thread pretty much ran its course 10 pages ago.
If weight askers never buy, and the very fact that they asked annoys you, then don't respond to them. Problem solved?
And it's not like it's every guitar. Thinline Teles, 335/6/9s, really any PRS save for their SCs, those guitars are typically not anvils, but you get into trouble with the LP types and some strats, even Teles.
NO! There must be a problem with no solution...haha. It's clear that it's what these guys live for..
Curious that you didn’t notice the complaints and rudeness from the other side (insults/name calling) directed at the OP, simply because his viewpoint didn’t align with their’s.
Absurd, OP set the tone. Curious you missed him telling people to go play keys in his opening salvo.
words on a screen. you can't really judge "tone" from words on a screen.
Like maybe, hmmm, all else being equal, play a lighter (*&(^ing guitar?
This is all very new to me. I also own one guitar and will never sell it, so I think I'll just keep scrolling...
Plenty of bassists don’t seem to mind...
ugh, sorry for the profanity guys.
Wow, lots of mental gymnastics to come to that conclusion. If you felt the tone of his original post was “rude” then you should have reported it as such instead of resorting to further rudeness, insults, and name calling.
HA!! I was surprised Mayer could handle Wolf for a whole gig, Tiger supposedly weighs even more.
The only time I ever picked up an Alembic guitar, I was shocked at the weight for such a thin, sleek instrument.
I mean, I read through page 6 or 7 and then took about a 6 page break and just hopped back in now so I could have missed some posts. You can highlight some for me if you like, but the OP replies stand out to me (because he is the OP). Just curious the actual motivation behind the thread... if it really was to just vent or if it was to engage in a conversation about guitar weight. His replies suggest the former, which I guess shame on the rest of us for thinking that was about having a discussion with differing viewpoints.
Who knows. It went downhill rather quickly. There was a lot of snarkiness from both sides. Thread probably should’ve been shut down pages ago. It’s pretty much just a repeat of the same arguments over and over at this point.
People are responding in kind.....let’s not pretend the OP didn’t throw down the gauntlet.
You’re a prime example of not seeing the other side that you complain about in others.
My entry into this thread was about as non confrontational as it gets.
It answers the question fine unless you’re just trying to make a pointless argument. The “percentage” is “significant” enough that they take the time and trouble to weigh the guitars and post the information. And in the case of Sweetwater we are talking about a LOT of guitars.
And yet there are 34 pages.
Just in case the OP is interested. One of the deciding factors in purchasing the below was based on weight - a very comfortable 7.5 pounds.
