I've seen the occasional Mira with a maple cap up for sale on Reverb - just spotted another recent listing, which fired some neurons that triggers the question: Sonically, what differences are there between the maple-capped Mira and a "typical" core Santana? I started this post thinking there weren't all that many differences, but I see now they have added up. Is it the 25" vs 24.5" scale? Does the pickup/control routing do that much for tone? Did the maple-capped Mira come with the same "Mira" pups as the non-maple-capped version? (The one I see on Reverb has had a pickup swap.) Does adding the maple cap add thickness back to the body? Or did they thin out the hog portion proportionally? Neck thickness? Wide thin vs Santana carve? Otherwise they are both hog body maple capped, hog neck, RW fretboard. Just curious - maybe this could be an outlet for @sergiodeblanc 's recent so-called "Satisfaction" with his current herd.
