Overview

Paul Reed Smith and John Mayer collaborated on Silver Sky Signature, aiming to bring to market a modern, idealized version of a vintage single-coil guitar. Mayer and PRS were inspired by and tried to include their favorite elements from vintage instruments released in 1963 and 1964, like neck shape and radius. It also features a special inverted headstock to accommodate Mayer's playing style and keep consistent length of string behind the nut for better tuning consistency. The tuners are vintage-style and closed-back with PRS's locking design and it also features a trem arm and Gen III knife-edge screws.

I am absolutely blown away by it! It is a beautiful guitar in looks, feel and sound! A credit to PRS for re-inventing the wh…

    This guitar plays perfectly. Pickups are awesomely balanced and all 5 selection settings are great, usable tones. Tone controls are more like filters with variance across the entire spectrum from 10-1. The most impressive aspect is the overall build quality and attention to detail. I’ve played 4 dif…

    Smaller lighter and not as “hot” as my Blackie. I really like the Silver Sky although it’s almost “toy” like. The plastic knobs and selector switch is very low weight thin plastic. Plug it in and the sound is stellar 🎸

    The finest guitar I have ever played! Love the smaller radius of the fretboard and sounds like an HQ strat.
