    Neck thru, SS frets, etc, in something that doesn't weight 10+ lbs at a reasonable price.

    Does anyone know if they are actual chambers or the Swiss cheese deal like Gibson does sometimes?

    weighed in at 8.1-8.2 lbs on my crappy bathroom scale. My Stocl AL3200 was mid to uper 9 lb rang on that scale. It's a little heavier than my thinner, chambered Studios, and they weighed in at the mid 7 lb range. Actually it's a great weight. Lighter, but also solid.

    That's what I wanted to hear. I had a AL3500 that weighed 11.2 lbs. Absolutely killed my shoulder. How does it sound unplugged? My 3500 was basically dead acoustically.

    I had a 3200 that weighed right under 11 lbs, which I couldn't accept and had to send it back.

    I'm hearing the chambered's are coming in right above 8 lbs -- I've only heard of two so far, I'm sure more are out there.

    Preface. All but the Semi Custom AL3200 and my Faded Studio, I bought first hand. I like guitars that sound good to great unplugged and feel alive when played unplugged. Oddly, the third loudest guitar I have, behind the Hollow body with no holes Gretsch Dbl Jet and the Ibanez Talman with Trem, is the Faded Studio.

    The Semi Custom is not the loudest, unplugged, but it is in the top three sustainers and resonated and vibrates as much as my two string throughs. THis is even in the two bouts.

    To my undestanding this has never been determined. I tried to find someone in town that would xray mine but I never did.

    Chambered. I have one, except its a double cut (AD rather than AL)

    Sometimes it reverberates so much that it produces it's own echoes. It's really alive.

    Definitely lighter than older solid body AL's I've had

    If any of you guys are in the nj/ny area and want to xray a guitar just send me a pm or reply.

    Mine is a standard 3200 so can't verify how they chamber a guitar.

    It is just a reflection of how long it would take for a semi-custom to be delivered.

    Thanks for the offer! I'd almost be willing to ship it to you! (you know, for the benefit of the AGF community)

    C'mon, someone's gotta be able to take up RP's offer?!?
