PRS SE Silversky John Mayer Signature with Maple FB in Overland Gray
An Uncompromising and Affordable Silver Sky
The original Silver Sky was designed in conjunction with John Mayer to elevate a familiar guitar aesthetic with PRS Guitars' world-renowned innovation. That collaboration is now making its way into the SE line with the goal of delivering a more affordable version of the Silver Sky — with all the same PRS quality! The SE Silver Sky features a lightweight poplar body loaded with a trio of 635JM “S” pickups to deliver all the glassy highs and round bottom end that you’d expect out of a classic three single-coil configuration. While the original Silver Sky kept the original 7.25-inch radius of its inspiration, the SE Silver Sky's maple neck and fingerboard offers a slightly modernized 8.5-inch radius that feels vintage, but injects a dose of modern playability. Since its inception, PRS has been known to push the boundaries of guitar design. The Silver Sky SE combines that philosophy with a deep respect for tradition, resulting in a high-performance, vintage-style model of the highest caliber — but at a wallet-friendly price!
Vintage-Inspired Neck with a Modern Twist
The SE Silver Sky’s biggest deviation from the standard model is a slightly modified 8.5-inch radius, as opposed to the original’s 7.25-inch radius. While most modernized fingerboards opt for a 10–16-inch radius, PRS has chosen to keep the radius mostly vintage, but with a small twist. It may seem like a small difference, but one riff on the SE Silver Sky is all it takes to feel the difference!
A Trio of Sweet-Sounding Single-Coil Pickups
If you're a single-coil tone connoisseur, then you'll love the PRS SE Silver Sky. Its pickups combine the best elements of early-'60s American electric guitars: a round and full tone with glassy, musical highs that never venture into ice-pick land. The chiming harmonics yielded by these pickups are jaw dropping. And when you put them in front of a tube amp, you'll bask in a gorgeous growl with outstanding note definition. These pickups have a few modern tricks up their sleeve, too: they exhibit a higher signal-to-noise ratio than vintage models, and their in-between sounds are noise canceling.
Reliable 2-Point Tremolo System
The SE Silver Sky’s 2-point steel tremolo is inspired by the classic tremolo systems of the past — but with modern PRS performance! No matter whether you’re doing subtle flutters or full-on dive-bombs, the SE Silver Sky’s tremolo is rock solid and easy to setup.
