    Guild Bluesbird weight?

    Just curious how much everyone's Bluesbirds weigh - I'm talking about the '97 - '03 (or so ) Bluesbirds. I only have a regular scale available to me, but mine is a little over 8 pounds. Seems like I got a heavy one! Or not?

    I have that blog saved, GAD, it is great!

    So in comparison, maybe mine is not so heavy after all...

    Interesting stuff! I had been thinking mine was heavier than most, but apparently not. DThomas, that Coronoa P90 is light!

    I haven't weighed mine but I'm confident it's under 6 lbs.

    Seem to recall a thread where it was shown that they changed the chambering in Corona?
    Or pics of the chambering, from an ad, at least.
