PRS Silver Sky
The PRS Silver Sky is one of those guitars that was veiled in secrecy for many long months. John Mayer, the instrument's co-designer, was spotted with one on a number of occasions on stage. This fueled speculation that it was a new signature instrument. The rumours proved true and now everybody can enjoy the fruits of Mayer and Paul Reed Smith's labours.
It's difficult to describe the Silver Sky without comparing it to a certain other American electric guitar. We'd be foolish to pretend otherwise! What PRS have done though, is go over this classic design (in particular the early 60s iterations of said guitar) with a fine-toothed comb. They have addressed and improved upon any and all areas determined by Mayer and Smith to be in need of modernization. The headstock, for example, is classic PRS but inverted to allow even better string travel. The tremolo is a hybrid design that adds PRS elements to the classic 'vintage' trem design. The PRS lower horn 'scoop' is clearly visible too.
PRS describe this as an "idealized version of a vintage single coil guitar" and for many, that is exactly what the Silver Sky is. This new John Mayer signature guitar has caused quite a stir and, as a major authorised PRS dealer, we are one of the few UK retailers to have access to it.
