The new releases were launched today via the PRS live-stream.
Dropping in to say g’day ahead of NAMM 2021, PRS have taken to the web to announce a brand new signature guitar for Snarky Puppy’s Mark Lettieri and sharing details of a limited edition John Mayer Silver Sky.
Dubbed the Fiore (Italian for flower), Mark Lettieri’s signature guitar boasts a contemporary design somewhere in between that of a classic PRS build and a Stratocaster. It’s built from swamp ash with a bolt-on maple neck and fretboard with 22 frets, while a two-point steel-tipped tremolo and vintage locking tuners to withstand the rigours of an expressive playing style.
Capable of churning out crystalline cleans and saturated, punchy lead tones alike, the Fiore features a HSS pickup configuration with push/pull tone controls, opening up a wide spectrum of tones to explore. The pickups in the guitar are brand new as well, with the Fiore-S and Fiore-H proving to be a perfect pair to traverse all kinds of genres.
The Fiore also features an engraved floral truss rod cover designed by Lettieri’s mother, and is available in a choice of three sweet finishes – Amaryllis, Sugar Moon and Black Iris. Hear the session guru chat about the guitar in the video below, and prepare to be dazzled by some stellar fretwork.
Also new to the PRS herd in 2021 is the John Mayer Silver Sky in the limited edition Lunar Ice finish. Similar to last year’s iridescent Nebula, this rare guitar – limited to 1000 units worldwide – is finished in a polychromatic colour scheme that reflects light differently depending on the angle, resulting in a stunning visual aesthetic.
