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.

    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.

  • Believe the Hype

    Verified Purchase

    As is to be expected with PRS, the build quality is excellent. It has my favorite neck profile I've ever played, nice and round without being unwieldy. The pickups are so balanced it's spooky, and the bridge pickup in particular deserves special mention for its lack of harsh high-end. As a whole, th…

    I was so excited about this guitar and within a few hours of playing it wrote a glowing review for it. The neck is great and the pickups sound awesome, but it has now been a few weeks since I bought it and in that time-frame I have found the setup to not be all that good (low E slips a lot) , …
