    The guitar I have in my avatar picture is one I built myself and I call it "old glory" for obvious reasons. I was going to hollow it out when I made it but I got rambunctious and whipped the thing together hastily. I weighed it and it comes in a 8-1/2 pounds which don't sound like much but it sure feels like 80 pounds. It must be the massive Explorer style body that causes that illusion. Tough thing about it is that it sounds so good and crunchy I hesitate to rip it apart and hollow it out, that, and the fact that I would have to re-do my tedious foot deep glass like nitrocellulose lacquer finish and airbrush art. Maybe being an oldtimer I can get away with sitting on a chair when I play it like Johnny Winter does. :-)
