Beautiful, but heavy. I asked the seller what it weighed:

" it is a 34" fullscale. The weight is around 13.5lbs, appr, "

13.5 lbs isn't bad with a wide strap.

Yes, it is. For a four to five hour gig, 13.5 pounds is too much on any strap. I'd live with it, though - that bass is awesome!

The weight wouldn't bother me. But the case would; the case on my Balance K is *right* at the limit size-wise.

The cases for these things are pretty big. I "borrowed" one for a month back in the late 90s, and it came to me in a large keyboard bag. It was a lot easier to transport that way, but much more care needed to be used to keep it safe.
