    I'm really liking it!! I haven't played it with any other guitar, but it seems to work out well with the mid-range, almost quacky tone of my guitar.

    The nature of it does seem bright, though. I keep the presence and treble lower on this amp, than any other amp I've had. I know on my old singe recto, I really had to crank the two to get what I wanted. On this, presence stays around 9 o'clock, and treble stays around 10-12 o'clock. On the Recto, they were both easily past noon, so definitely a different nature between the 2.

    Overall, I am happy with the whole setup. Especially after going with JJ tubes.

    SE arrived. I've got to say that I'm pretty impressed! It should tide me over until I have the scratch for a USA model.

    "Wide-Fat" = '59-ish. About the same as on my Elitist Custom. It feels great - action is wonderful. I'm more impressed than I thought I'd be - I'd played them in stores a little but, but I've really hammered the shit out of this one w/ massive bends and lots of attack - it feels great.

    :shock:Oh my god........I really, really, really didn't need to see this thread. Not at all. 2009 is allready looking like an "iffy" money year for me, to say the least, and most of my boring "priorities":rolleyes: are pretty much lined up.

    BUT DAMN!!!!!!! How do I not buy one of these things!!!!!!!!!??????? A USA model is gonna have to wait until I know what is going on with my work (company is in Chapter 11), and believe it or not my favorite PRS so far is acually a plain ole' MIRA in Trans-Orange with SOLID bird inlays, will take dots if the price is right.

    BUT, I think I am going to skip the Agile or Xavierre route, and just spend the extra couple hundo on a PRS SE ONE, or Soapbar II. I needs me some P90's, and these guitars are just amazing, period, not just for the money.

    You guys see that PRS SE ONE above in Vintage Sunburst???????? HOLY SHIT!!!! I have played these for over an hour and I hate to say it, but I think the ONE would become my #1. Yup, I said it. Not just to keep miles off of my Gibson, but because I find it more enjoyable to play. Now, I CAN'T get rid of my Gibby LP because it is absolutely perfect set-up, sound, and fit/finish/feel for an LP, and it covers all my humbucker needs. But I just love the simplicity and feel of the SE ONE. It is more comfortable to play than your typical JR., and it has its own sound. It ROCKED with high gain too, which surprised my greatly. Sounds incredible clean too.
    Simplicity at its best, aside from the MIK, but oh well. PRS USA should make this guitar as well. Could it possibly get any better? Maybe with even "nicer" woods and hardware I guess. Can't complain for under $500 though. I'm drooling over all these guitars!!!

    Dice, have no shame in checkin out the Mira's bro. They have a Maple top available now too. The most versatile and playable guitar I've had in my hands. They just hit a grand slam with this one, and they are new from $1500-$1900. Imagine a nice one used! But, if the Mira doesn't float your boat, how could anyone shake a stick at any of the Customs, McCartys, or, SC's????? Awesome guitars!

    I like the Miras, but I love a carved top - I'm gonna have to hold out for a regular ol' double cut. ;)
