The PRS Silver Sky caused a sensation when it was released and this beautiful Tungsten finish continues that trend!
The inspiration for the Silver Sky is obvious of course (there’s no denying it) and this bolt-on double cutaway guitar will be a mostly familiar sight to guitarists. John’s preference is for models and specs from the 1963-64 era. This is reflected in certain elements of the Silver Sky: the fretwire is a little smaller than standard PRS, for example, and the fingerboard has a decidedly retro 7.25” radius.
Other details are defiantly PRS though: that headstock shape is unmistakable regardless of the body it’s attached to! The Bird inlays are here too, modified to be slightly smaller than on other PRS guitars. On a more functional level, the bridge is an amalgamation of that classic ‘vintage trem’ design modded with a PRS arm and the same knife-edge screws you’ll find on PRS’s own design tremolo units for a ‘best of both worlds’ situation.
Mayer’s guitar has custom wound pickups that recreate the warmth and rich snap of those classic early sixties era single coils: they sound glassy without being in any way shrill. These pickups evoke a timeless past but are more than capable of growling and spitting venom too!
This high quality guitar is an example of refining and improving on a classic design, all in the search of perfection. John Mayer is famously scrutinising in his quest for tonal and formal excellence and this guitar is the result of years of exhaustive work between him and Paul Reed Smith.
