PRS Silver Sky: A Revolutionary Electric Guitar with Vintage Vibes

Introduced in 2018, the PRS Silver Sky electric guitar has taken the guitar world by storm, quickly gaining a reputation as a top-notch instrument for players of all levels. Designed by legendary guitarist John Mayer in partnership with PRS, the Silver Sky is an exceptional guitar that combines vintage-inspired aesthetics with modern playability and tone. In this article, we will explore the key features and benefits of the PRS Silver Sky guitar.

Design and Aesthetics

The PRS Silver Sky is a solid body electric guitar that takes its inspiration from the classic 1963 Fender Stratocaster. However, it is not a mere copycat but a unique take on the iconic design that incorporates elements from various vintage guitars to create its own personality. The guitar features a three-single-coil pickup configuration, a contoured alder body, and a bolt-on maple neck with a vintage-style 7.25-inch radius fingerboard.

The Silver Sky is available in four classic colors: Tungsten, Midnight Rose, Polar Blue, and Horizon. Each color has a distinctive look, thanks to the specially formulated nitrocellulose lacquer finish, which provides a vintage feel and exceptional resonance.

Playability

The PRS Silver Sky is designed to offer exceptional playing comfort and flexibility. The guitar’s neck has a 635mm scale length, which strikes a balance between traditional Fender and Gibson scale lengths. The neck shape is a modified C-shape that is both comfortable and easy to play. The fingerboard’s radius is 7.25 inches, which provides a vintage feel, allowing for smooth bending and string transitions. The guitar is equipped with PRS’s signature tremolo bridge, which adds fluidity and expression to your playing.

Tone

The PRS Silver Sky’s tone is what sets it apart from other guitars in its class. The guitar is equipped with three 635JM single-coil pickups that are designed to provide a vintage sound that is both articulate and dynamic. The pickups use custom-wound copper wire, which provides a brighter sound compared to the typical Stratocaster pickups. The guitar’s tone circuitry is also unique, featuring a dedicated tone control for the bridge pickup, which allows the player to dial in the perfect tone for any playing style.

Conclusion

The PRS Silver Sky is a guitar that is designed to offer the best of both worlds: vintage-inspired aesthetics and modern playability and tone. It is a versatile instrument that is suitable for a wide range of playing styles, from blues to rock to jazz. If you are looking for a high-quality guitar that has classic vibes and modern features, the PRS Silver Sky is an excellent choice.

1 review for PRS Silver Sky

  1. Dylan

    Well, as Dylan here, let me tell you how I felt after buying the PRS Silver Sky from that online shop in September. To be honest, I was a bit skeptical about its environmental impact because of the materials used and production methods, but hey, we all have our vices. So, when it finally arrived at 2025 E Convention Center Way, Ontario, CA 91764, United States, I couldn’t help but feel a mix of excitement and guilt. The PRS Silver Sky is a beautiful electric guitar that offers a unique playing experience with its 60s Stratocaster-inspired design, but with the added modern refinements of the 21st century. The rosewood fretboard adds warmth to its tone, while the 9.5 radius and 22 frets provide versatility for various playing styles. But here’s where it gets a bit cynical – the Black color of my PRS Silver Sky is pretty cool, but it doesn’t really make up for the fact that this instrument, like many others, contributes to deforestation and other environmental issues. Still, I can’t deny that playing this guitar makes me feel a certain kind of joy. It’s just hard to escape the nagging feeling that maybe I should have chosen something more sustainable.
