A while back we had a thread inquiring about the heaviest guitar people have played, now let's go in the opposite direction. What's the lightest guitar you've either played, own or once owned? Here's the lightest one I own, my PRS SE Soapbar II:



I haven't weighed it but it can't be more than 5 or 6 pounds at the most. When you pick it up it feels like it's made of balsa wood.
So let's hear from you and I'll wait for Larry to post the photo of the air guitars. ;)

My cousin has a Schecter Omen which has a chambered body if I'm not mistaken and it's lighter than my Ibanez Roadstar which is made out of basswood.

That's easy, my '62 SG Special. Both the lightest (at 5.5 lbs) AND best sounding guitar I've ever owned. It remains my #1....as well it should ;^ )

Lightest I have played was a strandberg Boden OS7. It was so light as to be almost unbelievable, but the balance was incredible. Chambered ash body, no headstock.

I might have bought it, but I didn't love it, and the price was a little much for a 7 string that would not get full-time play -- I primarily play 6-strings, and have enough trouble with that many.

This is the lightest guitar I've ever played and/or owned. Noticeable lighter than any of my 'dreads, although it's about the same size. Very dry wood - and not much metal.
