What are these things supposed to weigh?
LOL...Don't know what a Strat is 'supposed' to weigh and opinions do vary. I prefer a bit of weight to my guitars- some like feather weighted bodies...on and on.
FWIW I'm refinishing my American standard and the body, sans hardware and stripped of poly comes in at 4 lbs. 3 oz. IIRC I weighed my guitars about a year ago and my Strat fully equipped came in around 8 pounds!
SO...fellow south-eastern Pa Bro- BEST wishes with that beautiful guitar!!
