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.
