Product Description

More than 2-1/2 years in the making, the Silver Sky is a remarkable collaboration between PRS and John Mayer! This vintage-inspired guitar is both familiar and a whole-new playing experience thanks to close attention to detail and direction from John himself. Based on some Mayer’s favorite elements from 1963 and 1964 vintage instruments, PRS has come up with a guitar that will exceed expectations of the most discerning guitarists!

Some of the more distinctive specifications include the headstock shape, tuners, neck and fretboard, bridge and pickup and electronics. The headstock shape is based on PRS's trademark design but invented to both accommodate Mayer's playing style and also to keep a consistent length of string behind the nut, which makes staying in tune easier. The tuners are a traditional vintage-style, closed-back tuner but with PRS's locking design.

The neck shape was modeled after 1963/1964 vintage instruments and the fretboard has a 7.25" radius. The moment your hand grabs this neck, it just feels right. Like the tuners, the steel tremolo takes a classic design and incorporates PRS's trem arm and Gen III knife-edge screws. The bridge on the Silver Sky is setup flush to the body in the neutral position so that the tremolo bridge only goes down in pitch. By keeping the bridge in contact with the body, the guitar itself is acoustically louder which improves the signal to noise ratio of the single-coil pickups. The 635JM single-coils are very round and full with a musical high end that is never ‘Ice-picky’ or brash.

Other high quality specifications include a bone nut, a molded metal jack plate that is curved and makes plugging and unplugging a cable hassle-free, retooled knobs, fretwire that is slightly smaller than found on most PRS guitars and PRS's double action truss rod.

Product Review

I ordered my Silver Sky a couple of weeks ago from American Musical. I’ll be the first to admit I’m a big John Mayer Fan but that’s not the reason why I bought the guitar. The quality of Prs is what sold me on the guitar. I have 7 other core models, and have never been disappointed with them. I hadn’t gotten to play a silver sky before purchasing this one so I didn’t have any expectations before it came in, I just knew it would be a quality guitar because of the name on the headstock. When it came in and I took it out of the gig bag, the quality and finish of the guitar did not disappoint. The tone of the pick ups are fantastic and of course it nails the Mayer tone, but it also hits all of the other tones that a single coil guitar of this type is know for. The pickups are very well balanced, I can actually say I like all of them. The bridge pickup isn’t too harsh even with the tone knob all the way up, and speaking of tone knobs. These actually work as intended, they don’t just disappear below 6, or 7. Love the fact that the bridge pickup is wired to a tone knob as well. Every position on the 5 way switch is very usable in a band setting. I absolutely love the neck, it’s perfect. I still kinda wish it had a 10” radius like most of the other Prs guitars but this 7.25 is very comfortable and I’m going to lower the action a tad to see if it’ll fret out but as of now it’s not. Also don’t let being a fan of Mayer and his Fender relationship keep you from trying this awesome guitar. Trust me it’s worth it. In short I’d recommend this guitar to anyone. The only disappointment I’ve had is it’s a $2,300 guitar and comes with a gig bag. I don’t like the gig bag, if it were the quality of say a Reunion Blues I wouldn’t mind it at all. The gig-bag seems cheap.

Amazing

Product Review

PRS sends out the best product. Every guitar is set up perfect before shipped. No problem whatsoever. People always compare this guitar to a Strat, which is fair. A good Strat will cost less, but is sometimes hit or miss with the quality. Now if you’re looking for the sound of a 60’s Strat, you’ll pay a hell of a lot more and still get a hit or miss guitar. There is no miss on this guitar and the sound is amazing and feels great too when playing. Enjoy
