I would call it 'average' weight. It's not a feather, but it's not a boat anchor either. When i picked it up for the first time, it didn't hit me over the head and say, 'heavy'; I didn't even notice anything weight-wise until a friend of mine asked me about it. Then i was like, 'yea i guess it's not a feather, but it's not heavy either'. For some reason i find 1957/1958 goldtops to be typical of this weight. I've never handled a featherweight gold top from those 2 years.
