    That would be intense!

    Taylor did this, with their Loaded Pickguards for their Solidbody range (way underestimated guitars, BTW). Cool concept. I'd love to see this with the S2 Mira and Starla!

    After listening to those old promo videos I think I'd get a second Mira S2 wish some Deep Dish II action and McCarty switching.

    That's pretty darn cool! Thanks, Shawn!

    I have this image of a Mira S2 with the Phase IIIs (and of course, the faux bone or ebony knobs), 57/08s, and a PTC setup (because why not, if it's already there for the installs) being one HECK of a guitar!

    So the question... if you were going to buy an S2, which one would you get and how would you want the PTC to modify it?
    Agreed. It should have been a full pickguard like a Starla. That's pretty much where I would start with a S2 Mira. I wish they would have market focus groups, of which I could be a part, so we could comment on this sort of thing.

    PRS used to have focus groups, but found them to be - if I can speak frankly - useless. All they ever seemed to get out of them was that we wanted more everything.

    You still get to comment - with your wallet.

    Design by committee sucks; the process as well as the result. I'd rather see a guitar where 25% of the people love it and 75% hate than a guitar where 99% of the people who see/play it are indifferent.

    Not always, crowdsourcing works sometimes.

    I understand the idea behind the design and I know it's the kind of thing that's been done for years (Melody Maker) it's just I hate voting something down with my wallet when it's a minor issue. Regardless, I haven't seen one in person so my opinions are all based on photos.

    I totally get it. That's why this thread exists! One element, especially one that is easy to modify, won't stand in my way.

    Take a 24 and add a peizo set-up, like my P-22 so I dont have to lug a 3k+ guitar offshore and take the licks it does! But I guess thats why they call it a #1!
