I'd really like to get a comprehensive survey of pre CBS strat weights - just for my own research and database. Would LOVE it if you fellow owners could chime in with the date (neck will do) and weight of your pre CBS strats. Mine has a NOV 63 date and weighs exactly 7 and a half pounds. Let me clarify - that's 7 pounds, 8 ounces. Or 7.5 pounds My experience is that there's a lot of mixing metric and imperial measurements, so please be specific when you list the weight - 8.2 pounds does not mean 8 pounds and 2 ounces! If in doubt use grams, and I'll do the conversion. If you don't know how to weigh your strat, here's how. Place a container on the scale, something to place the strat on but still be able to read the display. Put the container on, zero the scales, then lay the strat on like this: Thanks! Oh, doesn't have to be just your strat. If you know of others online where the weight is listed, put them down here too.
