    Re: How much does your ES 335 weigh?

    So is DoubleBoogie's 9 pounder the heavy weight? I'm curious if anyone has a 335 type Gibson that has cracked 10 pounds or beyond? I guess I read the Guiness Book of World Records s little too much as a kid. The outliers are always intriguing.

    This 63 weighs in just shy of 8.25 lbs

    When you pick up the guitar, play it like it’s the last time.

    I too have bigsby on my 335 and one of my Lester’s. They are heavy, yet so worth it. I have B5s on both.

    I think it's safe to say that the weights of 335's are all over the map, the year has little to do with it, but Bigsby trems do, and threads like this can close or get a sticky status.

    PS, anyone who weighs a git on anything but a digital scale has no clue how much it really weighs :-)

    Really? how about "it probably weighs xxxx", or "I think it weighs xxxx", or "it feels like xxxx"?

    Re: How much does your ES 335 weigh?

    Interesting thread.

    Never owning an ES-335 I assumed the model would "generally" be lighter than the 8 pound mark.

    That's not really a thing on the LPF.
