    From memory mid 7lbs. I removed a fair amount of wood in the chambering!

    Very nice work right there.

    I've got a mate here in Sydney who turns these out in very small numbers each year for not a very small price but very high quality workmanship and components.

    Grak this is gorgeous. A Billy Bo is on my dream list to build. Lovely colours.

    Where did you get the plans from? Also wondering what the effect of not chambering it would be? Just excess weight? I don't have any routing equipment.

    What was your approx cost for all the hardware $AUD?

    I've been thinking about getting a blank Pitbull body + neck to have a go at a Billy Bo next (a bass).
