Description

What Reidys say...

"The new PRS John Mayer Silver Sky is loosely based on two guitars - 'vintage instruments' from 1963 and 1964, which we can assume with some level of certainity are Fender Strats. Paul Reed Smith and John Mayer have worked closely together to combine all their favourite features from these guitars, with the modern practices and production methods of PRS. The pickups are based on the single coils from 1963-64 so they'll have a vintage sound, though PRS have mellowed out the high frequencies a touch so they're never brash, or harsh sounding - expect musical, warm, rounded tones. These new 635JM pickups have also been created so that in positions one, three and five, there's a greater difference between the guitar's output and the single coil hum - in other words, you'll notice unwanted noise less.

The neck profile is, yep, you guessed it - based on those 63 and 64 guitars, but made with modern PRS neck design technology. That 7.25" fretboard radius will also give the guitar a nice, vintage feel. The Silver Sky uses slightly smaller frets compared to what you'd normally find on a PRS electric - as they use on their acoustics, though still a touch bigger than vintage frets. It's worth noting that, unlike other PRS electrics with trems, the new John Mayer signature will come with the trem flush to the body, so there's more contact. Acoustically, you'll get a touch more volume which also helps with the signal to noise ratio. Whilst the trem system is essentially a classic design, it's been tweaked with an unthreaded PRS arm (which you can customise the feel of), and the use of Gen III knife-edge screws."

What PRS say...
The PRS Silver Sky is the result of a close collaboration between Grammy Award-winning musician John Mayer and Paul Reed Smith. More than two and half years in the making, the Silver Sky is a vin­tage-inspired instrument that is at once familiar but also newly PRS through and through. This model was based off of Mayer and Smith's favorite elements from 1963 and 1964 vintage instruments, resulting in an idealized version of a vintage single-coil guitar. The attention that was paid to every detail sets this guitar apart.

Some of the more distinctive specifications include, the headstock shape, tuners, neck and fretboard, bridge, and pickups and electron­ics. The headstock shape is based on PRS's trademark design, but in­verted 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 Ill 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-coil pickups 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 guitar cable hassle-free, retooled knobs, fretwire that is slightly smaller than what you'd find on most PRS electric guitars, and PRS's double action truss rod (accessible from the front of the headstock for ease of use).

The Silver Sky comes in four colors with distinctive accents on PRS's trademark lower horn scoop.
