I’ve had mine since 2020 and haven’t had any issues with the blade switch. I prefer it to a toggle because I can easily give it a whack with my hand while I’m playing, with the way it’s positioned it’s really natural to change pickups while playing.
I prefer swamp ash body, maple neck and top on pretty much everything now. To my ear they cut through the mix better and have better note separation than the traditional mahogany body and neck woods. I really haven’t missed my all mahogany guitars since I got rid of them. Plus natural maple and...
I’m not affiliated in anyway with the seller but this looks like a pretty good deal.
I’d really like a Korina model but I can’t bring myself to pay the price most sellers are asking. The core Mira is a crazy value to me on the used market though, to be able to get a US made core PRS for $1500 and under is pretty crazy nowadays.
I recently bought mine for $1500 with bareknuckle pickups, so I’d say $1,500 with stock pickups is a little high but if it’s in good condition I’d go for it. Mine looks to have the same bridge as yours too.
They did the same thing on the SSH, the limited run with the MT pickups was flipped but the current LT models are standard. I’m assuming it has something to do with tone but no idea what the specifics are, both my 24-08 and SSH have the flipped neck pickup.
I’ve had and currently have a lot of great PRS guitars but the one that I hold everything else to is my 24-08. It sounds amazing and has endless sustain plus perfect weight, balance and neck. Brian’s guitars always has my favorite WL runs so I’m glad I was able to get one before prices went crazy.
I have a 24-08 and SSH, both with a swamp ash back and maple neck. The thing I think I’ve noticed most is the bass seems to be tighter with a swamp ash body. I could be totally wrong but that’s been my impression.
