I love CA designs, loved my '08 gloss tobacco burst GXi (sold it to fund my Emerald doubleneck) and my existing '08 charcoal Cargo RT. My only beef is the overall weight. Even the Cargo is kinda heavy for the small guitar it is. Was weight addressed in the redesigns? If not, it would be great if they were a fair bit lighter like a number of other CF builders are doing. Of course, efforts to do so would likely effect tone, maybe in a good way, maybe not so good. I suppose that if tone is compromised, it'd be best to stick with the current designs, but is CA trying to deal with it, or considers it a non-issue.
