I have a 'burst Mira X at home. Love it, due to the light weight. Plays as nice as my '87 Custom 24, and sounds great too.
Traveling today in Ohio, and I ran across an Orange Creme Mira X. Less than 5 lbs soaking wet (dealer weighed it). Dealer told me that the orange ones were the lightest of them all, but he did not know why. It feels lighter than mine, but there's no way to be sure until I get it home - because I bought it! So I can compare them at home.
Why did I need two? Heck, it was a killer deal, with original hang tags and case candy, but the wrong case. I talked him down a whole bunch and got an SE gig bag - it'll fly better that way anyway, Find the least expensive completed sale of a Mira X on eBay, and subtract $75. Plus tax. Killer deal.
Anyone know if the orange creme ones really are lighter weight? Thanks!
