These Paul Reed Smith Mira guitars are fast little buggers. I got my hands on one awhile back to play, and they kinda have a retro feel to them. The body is mahogany, and the it has a 3-way switch and split coil (rosewood fingerboard). The finishes are unusual colors, and you can get the neck in either fat or thin. They say this is the most affordable USA made guitar in the PRS lineup. I’ve seen a lot of people playing these – you should check one out.
Here’s an official Guitar World review of the PRS Mira in action so you can hear what it sounds like:
The PRS Guitars Mira is an electric guitar for today’s players with classic feel and tone but with the quality and stability you’ve come to expect from PRS. The Mira guitar features a thinner, solid mahogany body, 24-fret neck, matching pickguard and trussrod cover, Mira pickups, 3-way pickup selector and a mini toggle coil tap.Latin for wonderful, Mira is also the name of an unusually fast moving star located approximately 350 light years from earth. PRS gave their Mira star treatment with 24 frets, 25″ scale, 10″ radius, regular neck shape. Also features locking tuning pegs, PRS non-adjustable stoptail, Abalone moon inlays, East Indian rosewood fingerboard, a solid mahogany body and neck, Mira treble and bass pickups. Controls include volume, tone, 3-way blade switch and mini toggle coil tap. This combination of features lends a new voice to the PRS lineup.
