Specifically, the weight. My other guitars now feel like they weigh a ton! Anyone else?

Me too, although a HH2. The others now rarely get played.

I can't go back. For me, the Vader is, in all respects, perfect.

What do your Vader’s weigh in at? 6ish?
I remember getting my AE185 and how I quickly came appreciate it’s 6.6 lbs. It certainly makes a difference in comfort. It was over 2 lbs lighter than my rock maple dC150.

My two chambered 8s are just under 6lbs each.
