I realize that timber selection, electronics and also finish add to over every weight, yet what go an average full size acoustic etc weigh?

Do heavier guitars sound different than lighter ones?

My DR 500 seems really light in truth I make the efforts to sweet it on one old school bath scale and also it wouldn"t also register.

You are watching: How much does an acoustic guitar weigh

Feels favor it can weigh around 3-4 pounds.

Sweetwater shows weight top top the guitars in their photographic section. Many Dreds come in from simply over 4 lbs to just over 5 lbs.

I"ve not weighed mine, and also not come generalize yet I"ve usually discovered that the lighter a etc is, the far better it sounds.

According to the internet my EJ160e weighs 5 lbs - mine fake Terada J200 is a bit lighter also though the is lot bigger...


THREAD RESURRECTION:

 

I just pulled the LR Baggs element out of my already lightweight positiveeast.org J35. Ns weighed it and its roommate ~ above the digital scale.

 

2014 positiveeast.org J35 mahogany/Sitka: 3.80 lb

2016 Larrivee SD40 mahogany/Sitka 12 fret: 4.33 lb


Not sure this helps, but:

bought one Epi dr100 a couple of years earlier as a "beater" etc (hey, it was $100, okay). Epi claims the weight is between 4 and also 6 lbs.

Also have actually a Masterbilt AJ500M, however don"t know the weight. Go it really matter? exactly how does the sound?


 

If you gain a chance, have the right to you tell us much more about this? I"d love to view a picture, too, the you have one. I"m guessing it"s pretty similar to the Elite/Elitist version, no?

 

Thanks!

Sorry Red not certain if the works however a find of the positiveeast.org should bring up that old post. It has actually some pics of your exceptional collection too!

Thanks, Dodger. Ns hadn"t psychic that. I doubt yours is pretty comparable to mine Elitist, which is a really fine sounding guitar.
