    Yeah, the seller was flakey, but that's a killer guitar for $500! It's not nearly as beat up as the guitar I recently bought back 22 years after it was stolen from me. You've got a really nice guitar that you can be completely relaxed with. Break out your longhorn belt buckle!

    Do it!!!!! Be the first to get a PRS with a swirl paint job!!!!! Do a wicked bad-ass flake job - that guitar would be RAD in ANY sparkle color!!!

    Congrats on the new guitar!

    I've got an orbital sander you can borrow...Maybe you and Sergio should get together and mod that bad boy! Do a podcast or youtube series and let us follow along.

    I saw that one and wondered where it went - glad it went to a good home, sorry the seller was a douche.

    That story goes from “I may have to punch someone for the first time in years” to “Ok, this thing feels so good I’d rather pay to refinish it than not have it.” And, again reminds me that... I need one of those Mira’s.

    This might be a candidate for a "Sergio Skin" job. "Excellent condition". LOL. The finish looks FUBAR, but if she plays great, hey! Can't argue with the price. I've bought two of my 594's used off of Reverb and have been very happy (lucky) with what I got. But this deal has given me something to aspire to. Nice work.

    Naw, I’m good. Those “I got your back” texts are something special and shouldn’t be wasted. Sorta like this post.

    Congrats!!!
    I also wonder how the finish could chip at the neck joint...
    Maybe a strong drop of the guitar caused some stress in that area and the finish cracked?
    Do you see that the strings are properly aligned at the 24th fret?
    Can't tell from the pic you posted if it is the picture angle, or the strings lean towards the treble side...

    Well in the words of the great Sergio: this Mira took some serious Bangin',
    You seem to go fast through your bucket list.
    Mira 's are great and a no brainer at that price point. Have fun.:D

    IMO, a beat up body begs for decals, stickers, and/or painted on stuff. When I see the scaring around the neck heel though, I'd worry.

    Still, I'm absolutely SICK of sellers calling things "excellent" condition when they are beat to h#II! It's actually offensive, because it's bold face lying. And made worse by photos that intentionally hide all the damage. I wouldn't care if it was the greatest playing guitar I'd ever felt, I'd call them out, report them, demand a partial refund, and sign them up for every ED med 30 day free trial I could find. :p:p

    IKR! Think I'll see if it falls apart before I put any money into with a refin!

    Yeah, that neck pocket worries me. Looks, and feels solid, though. Time will tell. No visible damage, other than the finish.

    Thin, for the win!

    I actually wonder if he may have picked it away. There are a couple of spots on the edge of the fret board that has the clear coat lifting/peeling. There's some of it in front of the neck pick up, right next to that nasty missing finish.

    Swirl would be badass! I've been looking at his website all week. Sparkle would be my first choice, but I can't lie. I'd want the same finish you have, but I can't do that! I do have a bunch of the outlines sheets of cut-out birds from my factory visit. I was thinking a solid finish, like white, then lay those "templates" all over the top and spray on pink sparkle birds!

    That would be a blast, and likely funny as hell!

    Yes, you do!

    Nope, strings are properly aligned at the 24th fret, and all the way up the board. All good there.

    I hear ya! I feel the same way!
