Any incite on the weight of these models. I have an X310 and its got a nice weight but im looking for a 340 or 350, will they be heavier?

I've owned X330/340 & 350's as well as 3 Gibson Les Pauls. All 3 Electra's were similar weight to each other and all significantly lighter than the Gibsons. I think I weighed one or more of them under 9 pounds, but it was about 12 years ago.

MPC cavity, bigger control cavity, thinner bodies (I think) and laminated tops all contribute for sure.
