...Norlin LP you've ever played/owned?

And what year was it?

Curious.

I saw a 75 I really like, no breaks, great price....

But it's over 11 lbs.

My 78 Standard is not bad....the 74 & 76 deluxes are not either.....I will weigh them tomorrow....

Those are not even in the ballpark with the 79/82 Customs....they are both 12 on the nose.

The 76 Custom I sold earlier this year was 10lbs

69GT owns several that are really reasonable, as well as I remember....like 8-9 lb range???

His ass is getting ready for bow season, so don't expect an answer too soon.... :laugh2:

My last '73 Deluxe weighed in at a manageable 8 1/2 lbs. I wish I could say the same about my Recording.
This.

My uncle's '74 (the very first LP, that I ever laid my hands on) was around 9, which was a feather compare to just about every other one I've played since.

My 1975 deluxe is 9 lbs 12 oz
My 1979 Recording is 11 lbs 1oz

Wouldn't have it any other way. ;- )

Many early to mid 70s are still in 8,5-9,5 lbs ballpark. They got progressively heavier especially in late 70s and early 80s.

My '85 LP Custom is weight relieved and it's still at 10 pounds, but it's still lighter than my '77 and '78. Late 70's typically seem to weigh the most from my experience.

I recall there was one guy on here who picked up a '79 or '80 Silverburst that was around 9 ~ 9.5 pounds. That don't happen often...

My 71 deluxe routed for HBs comes in at 9.45 lbs. Perfect weight for me, and the lightest of the 3 Noel in LPs I have owned.
