    Hey Everyone,

    Today I received my first ever PRS. I’m usually a Fender guy, but was looking for a good value guitar with buckers. I found a KILLER deal on a SE Mira. Played it and the quality is stellar. I think I made a great decision. :)

    I have a set of Lindy Fralin Pure PAF that I was planning on dropping in. I’d also like to get a Tort pickguard for it. All I can find online are guards for the S2 - are they compatible? What about wiring kits? I’ve heard the wiring on the SE can leave a little to be desired. Really looking forward to playing my new Mira a ton.

    I was curious what you all suggest for other potential future mods?

    Any advice you all have would be most appreciated!

    Thanks everyone! Pics will come in just a few. I’m still a noob to the forums, so can’t post links

    I played for a few hours with it. I’m very used to the single coil sound, as my main guitar is a Telecaster. So, I’m still getting used to a different tone. I did not particularly like the coil tapping on this, but I *did* like the humbuckers.

    One thing I don’t like is the location of the pickup switch. I’m so used to my telecaster, so it feels weird. Not a big deal, though! Otherwise, it felt great!

    You xan have a custom pickguard made at WD Music. They have a lot of finish choices. I had one made for my S2 with an anodized look.

    I have found a number of places offering great looking guards for the S2 Mira. I own a SE Mira. Is it safe to assume the measurements for the screw holes are the same in my SE as they are in the S2?

    fantastic pick up! I think the shell pg will look great!

    Maybe locking tuners to make string changes that much easier!

    I wouldn’t assume anything until you’ve had a chance to double check about the pick guard. That’s a great axe.

    Yeah, I’m pretty happy with it! Practically brand new - plastic still on the pickguard. $450 shipped to my door!

    Nice looking guitar.
    I'd consider keeping the current pickguard ... but getting black knobs.

    Ha! I got the blue specifically because I like the look of a good Tort guard on blue. I haven’t decided on knobs and such, yet. I want to see the guard on before I make those changes. Still might end up with black lampshades, though!
