Just got a Sting Ray and while I like it, the darn thing is HEAVY

9 pounds 3 oz

Nothing special about it. 2018 non RS with RW fretboard

Just curious what everyone else's weigh in at

Man that is too heavy. If would not be too pleased if I had ordered one and that was the weight as I have a neck injury that makes anything over 8 pounds painful. It’s difficult enough at 8 pounds

Yeah, that’s heavy. Not sure what’s typical for the model, but you could browse some online sellers sites who list weights and see what they tend to run.

So the BFR StingRay from Dec 2019 was just shy of the 8 pound region, it was a little hefty and chunky for me, mostly the neck was too chungo for my tastes. I don't see StingRays being much more than 8 pounds though, and 9.3 pounds is entering StingRay Bass territory! :O

I have a 2017 and a 2018, both non-RS. One is about 7-3/4 pounds, the other about 8-1/2 pounds.

Most of the RS versions are under eight pounds.

OP's sounds unusually heavy.
