I am a big fan of Navigators. The wood they use and the craftdsmanship is second to none. weight can be an issue. If you like a heavy guitar Navs are tops. I have a 9lb NLP380 that is considered light. My 350 Gold Top is a little over 10. Spectacular guitars and I don't really mind the weight as I am a big guy. and 9 lbs isn't that heavy anyway. That said, a Crews at 8 or a little under is sounding very attractive to me. Especially if you can find one with a Braz board and the old wood. Crews is definitely on my short list for my next purchase. Sounds like I might have to look a while to get the one I want. They are pretty rare.
