Weight of different models?

SGs are around 5-7 pounds, IIRC.

Flying Vs can be REALLY light, or kinda heavy. I'd say it avarages 6 or so, but it changes.

Dots are a little under 7.

Les pauls are 9-11 pounds, less if chambered, obviously.

X-plorers seem to be even heavier than les pauls, on occasion. I'd say 8-10 pounds.

I've seen some Epi SGs swing the scales at eight pounds. Had a 2004 DW-made one that really was overweight. Fortunately the newer EE models seem to me a lot better. I'll try to remeber to bring my scale in tomorrow and take some measurements.

 

My G40065 reissue thing is an I model and is the heavist SG I have ever had. Heavier than either of my bandmates LP or Epiphone LP. The thing makes my shoulder hurt and is not at all neck heavy.

 

Don't have a scale but this thing is heavy.

What's an I serial mean again... and for that matter, what happened to Iconoclast? I miss Uncle Al's funny stories and such. [-(
