Thanks. I've put a matt black pg on since I took the pics. A very resonant Bass. Probably the best EB I've bought to date. Very light body also! This one's a keeper [smilie=cool-smiley-027.gif]

No scales here but my guess is about 8.5 lbs. Slightly lighter than the average Ray

....and a lot lighter than my 15 lbs 1979 Pre-EB [smilie=grinning-smiley-044.gif]
