Quite a lot! :lol: 

The Mira is all mahogany with a rosewood board, the Mira X has a very light "African basswood" body (actually obeche, apparently), "sipo" mahogany neck and pau ferro board.

Construction-wise, the Mira has 24 frets, wide-thin or regular neck and a contoured body; the Mira X has 22 frets, wide-fat neck and a slab body.  Pickups are the same but the Mira X doesn't have coil-splits.  And finally the Mira X has vintage style tuners - which I like!  :D

Going back to the Duesenberg, those are nice guitars! 

On the Wishbone Ash 40th anniversary DVD, Andy Powell uses a Duesenberg (not sure which model) on a couple of songs and I really noticed the difference in tone - it sounds much better than his Vs, to be honest.

mmm not selling that one well to me sounds like the x takes all the things I like away...still take the Duesy I think.....unless they do a nice gretsch

Have a few guitars that all sound great in own ways..last practice used the Duesy again and thought yeah...this is main gig guitar....has a great tone....unmodded. Cleans crisp clear not dark or muffled like some LP's. Add some drive and wow hold a note for days really does sing. great versatility of sounds with the p90 neck.
Great guitar, always stays in tune..even in very cold practice rooms. Great fast neck easy to play doesn't tire my old hands.
The 49er is not the lightest is up there with un weight relief'ed LP, if you like the sound but not the weight the starplayer tv is a great option(another on my list of wants)..sorry could go on for a while but am already using dodgy terms so will stop now

That 49er is very nice indeed. They seem to be very well priced guitars - maybe I should try one out one day. When I have some cash of course.
I think I hate being indecisive.
