my bathroom scale could be off but it sure feels the part, my other guitar is 7 lbs and there is a huge difference. The strat was killing me saturday at a jam, after a few hours I finaly broke the G string and broke out the backup axe, giving me some relief.

I'll try to weigh the strat on a commercial scale soon, I was just wondering if anyone else has a "back breaker strat" maybe its a new sig model :D

That would be a shame, it's such a nice guitar, just way too heavy.

It's supposed to be alder but I dont know for sure. The model is an american deluxe '05.

I did notice the body is about half an inch thicker than my friends 86 MIA strat.

I just weighed my other guitar that i know to be 7 lbs, it weighed on the same scale 8.5 lbs.....so that would make my strat 9 lbs, not as crazy as 10.5 lbs but heavy none the less.....quality gone down on strats :confused-smiley-010 I sure cant see any quality issues with this other than weight, infact It's one of the best built instruments i've ever examined, 95% of people who reviewed this model seem to think so as well.

:food-smiley-004: I love my strat too, it's so damn solid you could put it through a wall, dust it off and patch in :D it is heavy though.
