We all knew it was about to drop after a few select PRS US dealers leaked it by accident on their websites – now the PRS John Mayer Silver Sky has been officially announced – and it’s available to order…
John Mayer Silver Sky
It took about a year to finally become official, having been used by John live. In fact, he even shared it ‘unofficially’ on social media. Now we have all the official details and finishes for this new PRS Artist Signature model. Here’s what John had to say about the design process:
“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. 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.”
Released at last
Due out on 20th March and available in the colour schemes Tungsten, Frost, Onyx and Horizon, the first 500 guitars to ship will include a commemorative hardshell case. After that, the PRS John Mayer Silver Sky model will come as standard with a gig bag.
The rest of the specifications are exactly as we reported earlier, so the only thing to do now is to work out which colour you prefer. Although the price tag is fairly hefty, you’ll probably have to get your order in early to get the version with a hard case. The street price will be a bit less than the official RRP, though.
I’m slowly growing used to the reverse headstock and I would imagine that many players will be fazed by that aspect of the design. However, if it plays well and has the PRS quality we all know and expect then I think it could be a really great guitar.
RRP – GBP 2549
