PRS Bolt-On Silver Sky RW - Roxy Pink
“It’s been a dreamof mine for years to design a guitar that includes some of my favoritevintage specifications but with a modern spirit and aesthetic. After twoyears of study and refinement, the Silver Sky is my vision of what areboot of the electric guitar should look and feel like.” – John Mayer
ThePRS Silver Sky is an idealized version of a vintage single-coil guitarwhere every detail adds up and sets this guitar apart from the pack andthe past. The result of a close collaboration between GrammyAward-winning musician John Mayer and Paul Reed Smith, the Silver Sky isbased off of years of development. Incorporating Mayer and Smith’sfavorite elements of 1963 and 1964 instruments with an eye toward modernreferences, the PRS Silver Sky delivers the warmth and familiarity ofan old guitar with the finesse of a brand-new instrument.
Some ofthe more distinctive specifications include, the headstock shape,tuners, bridge, pickups, and neck and fretboard options. The headstockshape is based on PRS’s trademark design, but inverted both toaccommodate Mayer’s playing style and also to keep a consistent lengthof string behind the nut, which makes staying in tune easier. The tunersare a traditional vintage-style, closed-back tuner, but with PRS’slocking design. The steel tremolo takes the patented PRS design andincorporates Gen III knife-edge screws. Setup flush to the body in theneutral position so that the tremolo bridge only goes down in pitch, thebridge’s increased contact with the body allows the guitar itself to beacoustically louder, which in turn improves the signal to noise ratioof the single-coil pickups. The 635JM single-coil pickups are very roundand full, with a musical high end that is never “ice-picky” or brash.
TheSilver Sky comes with the option of a rosewood or maple fretboard. Themaple fretboard option comes with the original 635JM neck shape, whilethe rosewood fretboard option has been subtly modified in the shouldersto feel more “rounded” in your hand. Both neck shapes were designed byresearching vintage instruments and Mayer test-driving guitars on stageto find what felt right. The fretboard radius on both options is 7.25”.
Otherhigh-quality specifications include a bone nut, a molded metal jackplate (curved to make plugging and unplugging a guitar cablehassle-free), retooled knobs, and PRS’s double action truss rod(accessible from the front of the headstock for ease of use). PRSpremium gig bag included.
