I recently got a job in a cover band and I'm thinking that my back would thank a lighter instrument after playing 4h long shows
I definetely want to buy something used, as I don't want to spend much for playing crappy music Maybe 500-600$ maximum. The less, the better.
So... I need:
- 6 Strings
I don't want:
- TOM style bridges
- Active pickups
maybe a lighter Strat with a trem and a bridge humbucker? I'd think front routing would save some weight, as would the trem cavity, and you can cover a lot of ground with a HSS guitar. Ash and Alder tend to be lighter than mahogany as well.
