Priceless guitar right from the start, 10/10
Jimmyy, 25.03.2020
I've been playing this guitar for a while now and quite honestly I have had real trouble putting it down. Right from the beginning it has that very rich and warm 60s Stratocaster sound and feels really beautiful and smooth to play.
One particular feature that stands out from most other guitars I've played and that I really love is that it has a slightly fatter neck than your typical Fender Stratocaster (the modern and newer ones at least). The fatter C-neck profile in conjunction with the 7.25" radius fret board, the smooth and well rounded fret wires and the slightly smaller frets themselves all together make it really easy to play. The guitar also plays faster than most of today's Stratocasters and for me anyways it plays extremely smooth, my hand can just fly up and down the fret board with ease.
The 5-way tone switch works beautifully in that each position is unique and wonderful unlike most Stratocasters which are often hit or miss when it comes to all 5 of the 5 positions being perfect.
As John Mayer said it himself "I'm a huge fan of the Stratocaster. For years I've been interested in tweaking it, moving it forward, modernizing it a little bit". Well from playing it for a while now I can feel and understand exactly what he meant by that and I'm beyond impressed with how Paul Reed Smith and John have managed to achieve it, bravo.
Genuinely a 10/10 guitar for me and would recommend to anybody who loves a good Stratocaster, is looking for something a little different but still feels like home.

Unfassbarer Sound & Verarbeitungsqualität
beutlertier, 18.11.2019
Ich spiele jetzt seit ein paar Tagen auf der Silver Sky - und lasst mich euch eins sagen: Ich habe noch nie eine so super klingende und spielbare Gitarre erlebt. Die Verarbeitung ist perfekt. Ich habe mich für die Farbe "Moc Sand" entschieden, und bereue das keine Sekunde. Das schöne ist, dass die Farbe je nach Lichteinfall ein wenig anders scheint. Für mich stellt dieses Hell-Grau einfach etwas zeitloses dar. Achja, und der Sound. DER SOUND. Ich bin hin und weg.

Alle 5 Pick-Up-Schaltungen klingen so wie sie sollen, und lassen sich zu dem noch einmal durch die Tone-Regler anpassen. Ich habe alle möglichen Einstellungen probiert und bisher noch keine Frequenzen gefunden, die mich irgendwie gestört hätten, es klingt alles wunderbar. Meine Lieblingsposition ist aber definitiv Neck+Middle (Slow Dancing in a Burning Room... ;-)) Ich fühle mich beim Spielen irgendwie deutlich "freier" als auf meinen anderen Gitarren, es fühlt sich einfach alles richtig an. Das Halsprofil ist super angenehm, und die Bundgröße für mich genau richtig. Ich habe zudem das Gefühl, dass ich einfach auch durch die perfekte Verarbeitung deutlich besser spielen kann, und längere Ausdauer habe. Top!

Für jeden John Mayer Fan auch sehr interessant ist, dass der Sound tatsächlich genau so klingt wie auf seinem neusten Studioalbum, vorausgesetzt man spielt durch einen cleanen Amp wie einen Deluxe Reverb.

Für mich ist die Gitarre jeden Cent wert. Ich wette, sie könnte sich auch für einen höheren Preis verkaufen - denn dieser Sound klingt definitiv wie eine 64er Strat. Und die liegen schon mal bei $15000.

Das einzige was man bei dem Preis bemängeln könnte, wäre das fehlende Hardcase. Stattdessen kommt die Silver Sky im Gigbag. Für mich nicht dramatisch, da ich bereits einige Koffer zuhause habe - für andere mag dies eher uncool sein.

Für mich ganz klar das beste Geschenk, welches ich mir selbst machen konnte. Manchmal muss man einfach sagen "Treat Yourself" :-)
