guitar weight

    Why is the S2 Vela satin ltd (a solid body) lighter than an SE custom 22 semi-hollow?

    I really can't deal with heavy guitars, so I was a bit apprehensive about buying the Vela, but it was such a bargain that I couldn't resist. But I was shocked to find it's lighter than my semi-hollow custom 22. Does anyone know why it's lighter?
