PRS Silver Sky John Mayer Guitar
This incredibly talked about exciting guitar is an Frost finish version of the PRS Silver Sky. As a John Mayer Artist model it comes boasting a body design and neck profile that has been influenced by the worlds best loved golden era solid body design and shares some elements of Johns own 1963 and 1964 vintage instruments. This single coil guitar has been along time coming and has had 30 months or research and development lavished upon it. The Silver Sky features American craftsmanship and has been built without compromise to offer PRS and John Mayer's take on an absolute classic.
This is what PRS have to say about this Silver Sky Frost Version. 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 III 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.
