hard to know the exact weight of the guitar without weighing it in person. Wood density can vary.

Maybe the Classic S?

Otherwise you can order custom

My swamp ash Alt T Pro is very light, but it doesn't have the trem you're seeking. They don't make the Alt T Pro anymore, but I believe their still making the Alt T.

I'm loving my new Classic Antique S. I'm not much of a trem guy as I'm still getting used to the guitar after playing Gibsons with Nashville bridges for the past 20 years.

OP: What have you played in terms of Suhrs and what were your impressions?

The classic S is close, but the they are usually right around 8 pounds, so it will be difficult to find one that light.

The satin moderns run in the 6 to 7 lbs range. Custom order a standard with African mahogany body and maple neck. Should be close to 7lbs.

I used to be a thin neck fan back in the day and loved Jackson/Charvel compound radius necks from the San Dimas/Ft. Worth era. I guess I got some Gibsons in the 90's and started gravitating toward thicker necks as I started playing Les Pauls and SGs (I know, I have weird one with a thick neck as opposed to a Slim Taper).

I played a Modern Satin with an Okume (sp?) body and mahogany neck at my dealer this past weekend. The neck is definitely different than the Classic S with its changing profile on the back. Very, very fast but thinner. The pickups absolutely ripped through a PRS MT15 head/2x12 cabinet with clarity and warmth. But for some reason, my hands like the Classic's neck profile better. It's just personal.

The Classic Antique S neck is super comfortable and has enough meat on it for my tastes. I also played a Custom Shop Strat (early 60's relic?) and it had a noticeably thinner neck. I liked the Suhr better and I bought it. No regrets.
