    On the old CORE Mira's, (late 2000's) does anybody know the K ratings of the NECK pickups, and what type of magnets did they use?

    That’s also what I had heard. I have them in a Tremonti SE custom. Great match.

    Almost the same as SC245's. The 245's are covered. The Mira's are uncovered. That's the only difference.

    DC resistance is poor measure of a pickup, as DC resistance has only superficial correlation to output.. If you want the know why, read my “Delvin into TCI” thread.

    The Mira neck pickup from my 2008 KL33 has a DCR of 8,77 kOhm, bridge is 9,40 kOhm.

    Love those pickups

    My Mira has Pattern/Regular (Standard) neck carve, according to modcat. Pattern Regular on hang tag.

    I'm a little obsessed with this as my S2 with the new pattern regular feels chunkier & still more familiar, find it easier to play, getting there but its remarkable how different they feel underhand - have had to adjust positioning to avoid cramping

    Love the pickups though

    Sadly, PRS rarely releases this info. They did indicate 57/08s were A2, but I think that's the only one with that info specified.
