I was looking into guitars with double cutaways, and I looked at these three guitars: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/compare?base_pid=518893&base_pid=514304&base_pid=513810

Anyone have any suggestions or problems with these guitars? Which one should I look into?

go with the mira man! PRS are seriously some of the nicest guitars out there. like i've had one at my store and it was literally one of the best i've ever played (:

well anyway go for a gibson double cutaway LP if you have to.

How do the pickups on the Mira compare to, say, a burstbucker pro or a '57?

I already have one and unhappy how the sharp horn sticks into my leg while I'm playing. I've tried the Gibson Double cutaway and it sits on my lap nicely, so I figured it's what I really wanted.

I was gonna go with a strat, but the pickups weren't cutting it, and one of these guitars felt better than a strat.

I keep hearing people saying good things about PRS guitars. I don't know anything about Dan Armstrong, and from what people have been saying Gibson has been really hit or miss lately.

Well, if it helps, I play anything in the field of the general "Rock and blues". Anything from Stevie Ray Vaughan to the Foo Fighters to Led Zeppelin. I'll never play anything heavier than Metallica and Megadeth. Which would you use for these genres?

The plexi will be way too heavy so I'd probably rule that out.

The Gibson is overpriced however the Mira's pick-ups are VERY one-dimensional.

Solution? Buy a Mira and replace the pick-ups.

One-dimensional? Care to explain?

They sound muddy to me, plus even PRS totes it as a guitar for Classic-Rock (sounds like a claim of it being one-dimensional to me). Notice this selective classification by PRS, meanwhile with the 513 they note it as a very versatile sounding guitar. Sure things aren't set in stone but still I don't think they'd make such a claim without being sure of their product. This plus the video (along with actually playing a few at GC on various amps like an AC30, a 5150III, and a used Bogner Ecstasy) leads me to believe its very one dimensional.

The Gibson Double Cut, I've played the Gibson and am convinced that that's the first Gibson I plan on buying someday when I can actually afford a Gibson.

PRS are amazing as well, one of those two.

May i suggest Carvin..?

Otherwise, my first choice would be the double-cut les paul. After that would be the mira. The Plexi is kinda like yeah it's a great guitar and all but it's more like 'hey look i'm different and unique' kinda thing, i don't think it'd be a great choice for a guitar you'll use a lot.
