I had a gig Saturday and decided to use the Mira since I hadn't taken it "out" yet. This gig is a bluegrassy thing. Yes, you read that correctly, and NO I am not a bluegrass player, but I fake it the best I can. I played mainly with a Fender amp tone with some gain and compression for sustain. I toggled between the single coil modes, and for varying parts used neck, bridge and middle. All worked even better than I expected. For the bluesy stuff I'd flip the coil tap switch to HB mode for solos and of course, that worked great as well. Overall, I was very happy with how it sounded and how well it covered the various tones I used. Last night I played one song, special music at church and again took the Mira. This was a totally clean tone (modified Clean Mod Deluxe in the AA3) which has some delays and compression for sustain. I used the middle position tapped, volume at 7 for most of the song, and rolled to 10 for my extended solo. That tweener position sounds great with the coils tapped, and worked perfectly for the song. Needless to say, when I got home last night, I had to get the hillbilly out of the guitar, and the mojo back. So i played some Scorpions and Van Halen through my favorite SLO, 5150 and HBE presets. You don't want to put them away after playing that other stuff or they might stick in that mode. You've got to remind them of what they are really there for, and it doesn't involve a cowboy hat or boots! The guitar covered all that very well. Very happy with this guitar and super happy I made the trade.
