The PRS Silver Sky is an idealized version of a vintage single-coil guitar and the result of a close collaboration between Grammy Award-winning musician John Mayer and Paul Reed Smith. Incorporating their favorite elements of 1963 and 1964 instruments with an eye toward modern references, the PRS Silver Sky delivers the warmth and familiarity of an old guitar with the finesse of a brand-new instrument.
The headstock shape is a PRS trademark design, but is inverted to accommodate Mayer’s playing style. A consistent length of string behind the nut keeps tuning stable; the locking tuners are vintage-style with closed backs.
The Silver Sky has a maple neck with Mayer's custom profile and a maple fretboard inlayed with PRS birds. It comes loaded with 635JM single-coil pickups that have a round, full tone with a smooth and musical high end. Mayer spec'd the guitar with a steel tremolo that incorporates Gen III knife-edge screws. It's set in the neutral position—the tremolo bridge only goes down in pitch. The bridge's increased contact with the Silver Sky body make the guitar acoustically louder, which in turn improves the signal-to-noise ratio of the pickups.
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.
