Okay....here's my contribution to this thread. Just listen, okay...read, and think about it. This isn't a real flashy idea, but the cost would probably be more approachable to more people:
Mira One or Mira Junior.
Think how cool a Mira with one snarling Deep Dish II in the bridge slot with an adjustable bridge.
Birds with a Pattern Thin or Regular shape.
Hybrid hardware and Phase IIIs.
Tortoise guard? With some one-off finishes that would be exclusive to our guitar!
Just a thought from a devoted tremolo user.
My favorite pickups of all time are the 57/08s...I could be very happy with one of those in the Mira Uno.
Also, I think a model like this would be accessible to a larger number of forum members.
As soon as you brought up Mira, I lost complete interest. Not trying to be rude, just not interested in the slightest in a Mira.
I'm wondering if designing two (2) forum guitars would actually bring in more than twice the number of people a single model would. I'm thinking that a "Tier 1 model" along the lines of the DC22 with all the options would be the more expensive of the two....maybe even more than a typical production model...kinda like a wood library special run, but with options like Brazilian neck, piezo, etc, etc.
Then, the "tier 2 model" is more along the lines of the stripped down Mira described above.
This way, you get those who can't afford a hi-end model AND those who can...hopefully buying into the "forum guitar concept".
Or maybe not.
Stick to the polls. Focus on a single solution. Stay the course.
Ah the Mira One! It's been dreamed in another PRS location. This is not my work, it's from one of our friends in the UK (olioli).
I recall drafting up a Starla One with a narrowfield and an SE One pickguard.
How about it we count "I wills" and see how big the number gets.Quote:
Right now we're working from this baseline:
Bridge: Piezo Trem (potential option)
Neck Carve: Santana (potential option)
Pickups: Narrow 408 (like on Brent Mason & Paul's guitar)
Fretboard: Brazilian Rosewood
Headstock Image: Hand-signed by Paul
Finish: Ultra-thin Nitro
Case: Black Paisley
Dealer: Your choice
I'll start 1
If you have an opinion on this (even if the answer is "it depends on the price") NOW is the time to speak up.
A very hesitant (price dependent) 5
