FINALLY! We have received the much ballyhooed 2019 PRS Silver Sky. We’ve only been waiting a FREAKIN’ YEAR to get one, and we expect to get a few more in the coming weeks…SO….you can now score one, or reserve one in a different color now. YA GOTTA COME BY AND PLAY THIS AMAZING GEETAR!
This one weighs 7 pounds exactly.
The PRS Silver Sky was designed by Paul Reed Smith and built to John Mayer's specifications. This vintage-inspired guitar boasts a familiar shape with an eye-catching contrasting and functional cutaway scoop. Its neck carve, scale length, and fingerboard radius were modeled after John's early-'60s instruments; however, a modified PRS-style headstock and locking tuners propel it firmly into the twenty-first century. Plug this well refined axe into your favorite amp, and its sweet-sounding single-coil pickups will churn out glassy, sparkling and familiar musical tones with excellent note definition. Beyond that, the Silver Sky includes a bone nut, molded metal jack plate, retooled knobs, custom fret-wire, PRS's double-action truss rod and of course PRS’s superb build quality.
The Silver Sky's neck is patterned after John Mayer's beloved vintage instruments. Its fingerboard is loaded with 22 custom-sized frets, a 25.5" scale length and 7.25" fingerboard radius. Wrap your hand around this neck, and you'll agree — it just feels right. The Silver Sky features an inverted PRS-style headstock that's been modified to accommodate John's playing style and to keep a consistent length of string behind the nut, which improves intonation. You also get traditional vintage-style closed-back tuners with modern locking mechanisms.
If you're a single-coil player, you'll love the Silver Sky. Its pickups combine the best elements of early-'60s American electric guitars: a round and full tone with glassy, musical highs that never venture into ice-pick land. The chiming harmonics yielded by these pickups are impressive. And when you put them in front of a tube amp, you get a gorgeous growl with outstanding note definition. These pickups have a few modern tricks up their sleeve, too: they exhibit a higher signal-to-noise ratio than vintage models, and their in-between sounds are hum canceling. On top of that, their electronics have been precision valued- component matched, ensuring superior consistency from pickup to pickup.
Much like its tuners, the Silver Sky's tremolo takes a classic design and embellishes it with modern features including PRS's unthreaded tremolo arm, which supplies you with a small set screw to optimize its playing position. Beyond that, Gen III knife-edge screws ensure a reliable return to pitch. Also, per John Mayer's request, the tremolo rests flush against the guitar's body in a neutral position, so that it only goes down in pitch. Keeping the bridge in contact with the body amplifies the guitar acoustically, which improves the signal-to-noise ratio of the Silver Sky's pickups.
