“It's been a dream of mine for years to design a guitar that includes some of my favorite vintage specifications but with a modern spirit and aesthetic. After two years of study and refinement, PRS Silver Sky is my vision of what a reboot of the electric guitar should look and feel like.” —John Mayer
PRS Silver Sky is an idealized version of a vintage single-coil guitar where every detail adds up and sets this guitar apart from the pack and the past. The result of a close collaboration between Grammy Award-winning musician John Mayer and Paul Reed Smith, Silver Sky benefits from years of development. Incorporating Mayer and Smith's favorite elements of 1963 and 1964 instruments with an eye toward modern references, PRS Silver Sky delivers the warmth and familiarity of an old guitar with the finesse of a brand-new instrument.
The headstock shape is based on PRS's trademark design, but inverted both to 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 steel tremolo takes the patented PRS design and incorporates Gen III knife-edge screws. Setup flush to the body in the neutral position so that the tremolo bridge only goes down in pitch, the bridge's increased contact with the body allows the guitar itself to be acoustically louder, which in turn 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.
This model has a maple neck and fretboard with the original 635JM neck shape and PRS trademark 'small birds' inlays.
Other high-quality specifications include a bone nut, a molded metal jack plate (curved to make plugging and unplugging a guitar cable hassle-free), retooled knobs and PRS's double action truss rod, accessible from the front of the headstock for ease of use. A PRS premium gig bag is included.
