What's the lightest solid body guitar you own?

Rick Kelly Bowery Pine Tele. 6.7lbs. 150 years of indoor air drying will do it. Probably would be even lighter if I got the pine neck instead of maple.

I'm not sure which one, but it's probably high 7 low 8 pound range. I prefer light guitars, but there's such a thing as "too light".

Guitars in the mid six-pound range are getting fairly commonplace. I've got three; VHR '50s Tele, Historic DC Junior, and a Historic SG/LP. My old Heritage Series korina V was in there too; the korina Hamer Vector I have now is in the low 7s but it has a thicker body.

Partscaster tele, Rutters Spanish Cedar body. I've not weighed it, but has to be well under 7 pounds. Maybe even 6.

This one . . . if it's heavier than seven pounds I'd be amazed!

My Fender '57 Hot Rod Strat 5.50lbs. I've weighted it on multiple calibrated scales, still surprised how light it really is.
