Yeah, 1 centimeter sounds about right. I just checked my notes for a typical stock, un-customized Pro One. Mass unstrung 310. Mass Strung 326. So strings add 16 grams. Unstrung balance at 315mm. Strung balance at 5 points HL... (326.75 mm). So 11.75 mm difference which is 1.175 cm. Close enough for Jazz given the points system is a built upon the Jazzy notion of rounding off to the nearest 1/8 of an inch.
