I've been playing EBMM guitars lately, but I recently picked up a couple PRSi to add to the "arsenal" due to getting really good deals on both of them...

a used Mira with Starla pickups...

and a new 2016 Vela, black with a white pickguard for a "tuxedo" kind of look...

The Mira is turning out to be a bit bland and will probably move on, but the Vela is awesome, and through the Dallas 410 I got recently sounds fantastic.

Those original Mira guitars were great. Maybe the pickups don't suit it? Are they Starla pickups?

Dude, I have the same Mira with stock pups and birds and it rocks! Very versatile but maybe it's just not for you and that's OK. I'll admit to liking a fatter neck though.
That Vela looks killer!

I guess "bland" isn't the right word...the Mira just doesn't necessarily give me anything I can't get from other guitars I already have. They are Starla pickups.

The Vela gives me some tones I don't get from other guitars in my collection.

I like both of these new guitars! Maybe trying some different pickups might suit the Mira.?
Have you heard of Tyson pickups from California? Bob makes some really great sounding stuff.
