    Let's see 'em!

    Here is my contribution. 2008 Mira. Purchased brand new by my awesome wife as a 5th wedding anniversary gift.
    Freshly re-strung and tuned to D Standard. :D

    I never took a pic of the one I had, but it was a terrific guitar. And it was that vintage orange color. Gorgeous thing, played like buttah, sounded fantastic.

    Nice! I'd love to get my hands on one of those Lilac/purpley Miras.

    Not the best picture. 2010 stock except for the SC245 pickups which are the same as Mira's but covered.

    Here's a bad phone pic of my two main Miras... My first Mira was a Seafoam Green one that I played the snot out of for years before trading it in on the Vintage Cherry one on the left... The 25th Anniversary model with soapbars took me a long time to find.... I also have another 2008 in Vintage Mahogany, but that one's up for sale right now... These two are staying however...

    Mira 25th - my long sought after guitar! Sounds crazy good, especially through the gain channel on my Custom 50, it's one of those magic combinations!

    Now gone, but missed. PTC installed early 57/08s. If I didn't have an amp problem, I'd still have it.

    They're interesting pickups - a lot of single coils sound brittle and empty with lots of gain, but these really sing, even more so than my humbucker guitars.

    Also, there are some insane Miras in this thread!!!

    I played one just like this at the first PRS Experience in 2007. (it was the one that Derek St. Holmes played onstage) I loved it and ordered one from good ole Brian Meader, who was still at Chuck Levin's at the time. Great decision. It sounds more like Live at Leeds and early Bill Frisell than any other modern guitar I've tried. That's a very very good thing.

    Kingsley actually handed me a Mira at the first Experience. Up until then, I'd been resisting them.

    That didn't last.

    A nice Mira Maple Top.
    It was the first USA Made PRS that I bought, and the best sounding for my styles.
