The long-awaited (and highly speculated) collaboration between PRS and John Mayer has been revealed with the announcement of Mayer’s new signature model, Silver Sky.
The Silver Sky is inspired by Mayer and Paul Reed Smith’s favourite characteristics of vintage instruments, and is two and a half years in the making. Featuring an inverted PRS headstock to suit Mayer’s playing style, the guitar is also designed with a number of vintage appointments, including closed-back tuners and a neck shape modelled after 1963-1964 instruments.
“It’s been a dream of mine for years to design a guitar that includes some of my favorite vintage specifications but with a modern spirit and aesthetic," said Mayer. "After two years of study and refinement, the Silver Sky is my vision of what a reboot of the electric guitar should look and feel like.”
Mayer’s Silver Sky guitar also includes single-coil pickups, a bone nut, an alder body, and a choice of four finishes: Frost, Horizon, Onyx, and Tungsten.
PRS are distributed in Australia through Electric Factory.
