I'm looking at buying a sitar. A couple of the sitars on Amazon have the weight listed as 100 and 116 pounds. This seems way too heavy. Anybody know how much a sitar such as this would weigh?

Probably 6-10 lbs, roughly the same as a guitar. Typically they will raise the shipping weight if something is physically large. Basically, they'd charge a shipping & handling rate equivalent to that of a 100lb item.

This man is correct. My sitar weighs roughly somewhere in between the weight of an electric and acoustic.

Mailman's gonna be pumped as hell when he realizes one of his "100 pounds" quota boxes is like 8 pounds.
