My #3 came in at an unexpected 900gm: Hickory wood peg tuners, cotton wood side, back, neck, and kerfing. Birch spine in neck. Thinner then normal oak fretboard. Spruce top, braces, sound bars.
I'm sure it won't last long but you really feel it when you play.
Picking it up and cradling her in the playing position is a joy.
More a shooting star then a mountain.
Flawed? Of course, but she is only my third.
I was aiming for under 1100 grams and was truly shocked when I put her on the scale without finish, strings, nut and saddle and didn't believe it read 875gm or somthing like that.
The finish is just now cureing and she has brightened up signifagantly, well that or the hours of three finger roscoegoes have opened her up.
I hate sanding wood or anything else for that matter I just happen to be good at it...
