I have in my possession a 76 Fender P-Bass. My question is regarding the weight. I put it on my digital home scale and it shows it weighs 8.3 lbs. Did this particular model Bass usually come in this light weight? It actually weighs only 1 lb. more than my Tele. Thanks, bRian.

I have two '76 precisions, but no scale to weigh them on :( I do however have a '78 gibson rd and they seem like feathers next to that!!!

The ash bodies can be lighter than the alder ones (if I recall correctly) and were generally used for the "natural" factory finishes.
