Tried a gorgeous "Georgia Green" 5622 at a local shop yesterday. Loved everything about it except it's weight.<br /> <br /> 9.5lbs. The centerblock must be made out of solid ebony to weigh that much!<br /> <br /> Thought I was playing a Les Paul.<br /> <br /> I'd have bought the guitar had it weighed no more than 7.5 lbs, but at 71 I just ain't gonna sling a heavyweight anymore. <br /> <br /> Dang.<br /> <br /> They make this model without the centerblock, but don't offer it in the "must-have" color of Georgia Green.<br /> <br /> 6<br />
