Modern Guitars Magazine Reviews The PRS Mira Maple Top

Disclosure Policy | Thu, Oct 2, 2008 | 1197 |

While we’re on the subject of PRS (Paul Reed Smith,) just thought I’d point you all towards Modern Guitar Magazine’s new review of the PRS Mira Maple Top.

Unfortunately, I’ve tried on a few occasions to get the good folks at PRS to send me an instrument for review, but so far they’ve been a no-show. So, we’ll have to let Modern Guitar have all the fun…

If you’re looking for a PRS with a vintage tone and feel, this might be the one for you––

…Based on the guitar’s size, weight and balance and excellent construction, we consider it a worthy competitor to a Custom Shop grade Telecaster. Paul Reed Smith has managed to build a new model that maintains a vintage vibe, yet still makes its own contemporary statement. The Mira’s hardware was also visually appealing in a highly polished chrome finish, with the tuning peg heads tinted black. Particularly nice is the PRS built chromed bridge that’s got a sleek art deco vibe going. Two black open-faced Humbuckers help complete the retro look, with a small toggle coil tap set alongside the tone control for an easy and intuitive reach….

The instrument ships with a hard shell case (black tolex,) documentation, and is fetching an MSRP of $2,960… I’m guessing we can expect street prices in the mid $2,000s.
