Thanks for creating the thread Sin, it's definitely food for thought. My young son plays and Epi LP with a Bigsby and he loves it but it is HEAVY. I'm not sure it's great to have him hold that much weight all the time, so I have been thinking about getting him a lighter guitar for practice and then use his LP for performances. The SG might be a perfect fit. Is there anywhere where the weights for the various Gibson and Epi LP and SG models are published? Also would be interesting to know how those weights compare to a strat.
