No. 1197, weighs 7lbs 1oz

Over two-and-a-half years in development, Paul Reed Smith and John Mayer have created a double-cutaway electric that is as close as possible to the final word in a bolt-on neck, three pickup guitar. If you love vintage feel and tone as much as we do, with the fit and finish for which PRS in known, this is a guitar that may easily become your day-to-day player.
FINALLY--The PRS Silver Sky gets a maple fingerboard
This version of the Silver Sky adds a maple fingerboard to the Mayer signature guitar, something many customers have asked for. Maple tends to lend a little more “snap” to the tonal palette and, along with the classically comfortable neck profile, adds a little ‘50s vintage vibe to the early ’60s guitars that were the inspiration for this signature instrument.
Mayer pickups give the Silver Sky unique tone
Both PRS and Mayer hold that the pickups are a major part of the design, and these signature single-coils are full and warm with a smooth high-end that’s never strays into “ice-pick” territory. This is the best “Stratty” sounding S style axe we’ve EVER heard!
The tremolo bridge and tuners carry several PRS-developed designs, like a locking version of the traditional closed-back tuner and Gen III knife-edge screws on the steel plate vibrato. We’ve found that these updates add a lot to your tuning stability while retaining that quintessential vintage feel.
This is the PRS to get for classic tones
Since its debut, the PRS John Mayer Silver Sky signature electric guitar has developed an avid following, and not just among Mayer’s fanbase. If you’ve been looking for an electric guitar that brings together the best of vintage details with modern precision, we think the PRS John Mayer Silver Sky is well worth a deeper look.
