Even though my LPs are averaging closer to the 10lbs side (over 9.5), I voted 9lb.

My '96 Standard is 9.1 lbs.

As for rounding up or down, how about this:

anything over X.5 lbs - round up to the next full lb.
anything at or below X.5 lbs - round down to the full lb.

Ok folks, so lets do what Slater529 suggested...

anything over X.5 lbs - round up to the next full lb.

anything at or below X.5 lbs - round down to the full lb.

1978 The Paul 10.2 lbs (sorry, I don't mess with ounces as translating from metric)
2011 Studio Pro Faded 6.9 lbs
2013 R6 9.2 lbs
2013 R8 8.8 lbs

FWIW, I had a MIJ lawsuit LP that was 11 lbs. ...
I put that in here as my own personal proof that weight doesn't necessarily mean tone. Well-built, well-finished, and some nice pickups didn't make it anything special. But the super-light Studio with off-the-shelf S-D pickups sounds special, to me. The two Historics also sound great! The Paul, sadly, is not very special :(
