The new SE on the block

electric guitar PRS SE Silver Sky Stone Blue front

The PRS Silver Sky may have been the most polarising guitar of recent years, but its popularity cannot be denied. Since its introduction, the company has been barely able to keep up with the demand. This is in no small part thanks to its artist association with John Mayer, one of today’s most influential guitar players, but also because the instrument represents the best of traditional features, but with the benefit of modern methods and materials, to meet the demands of the modern player. And though from afar the design may look very familiar, PRS and John Mayer have included some refinements that improve upon this classic design. With the PRS SE Silver Sky, the guitar is now available as a more affordable alternative to the US-made version.

Traditional meets modern

The PRS SE Silver Sky clearly wears its heritage proudly. The classic double cut design has been updated to include the signature PRS carve on the lower horn, making access to the upper register even easier. The body is fashioned out of poplar, while the bolt-on maple neck sports a rosewood fingerboard with the classic PRS bird inlays. The fingerboard radius is a comfortable and more modern 8.5”, while the scale length remains 25.5” (648mm). Three 635JM “S” single coils power the guitar and provide that classic single coil sound, while being balanced and even. The pickups are wired through a single volume and two tone controls, and a five-way pickup selector switch, so dialling in your tones the way you want is never a problem. Even the ouput jack has been redesigned.

Not just for Blues

John Mayer may be one of the most celebrated Blues guitarists of modern times, but the PRS SE Silver Sky is by no means limited to this one genre. The guitar can just as easily belt out Hard Rock or Pop, Reggae or Punk, Country or Alternative, Metal or, if you are that way inclined, Jazz, and even Hip-Hop! This guitar will wail like a baby or roar like a lion, it’s all up to the player. It’s not for nothing that players have been asking for this PRS instrument ever since the original Silver Sky came out back in 2018. This relative newcomer to the PRS family has already become a staple on stages across the world. The SE Silver Sky may be a modern instrument, but it is also a classic in the making.

About PRS

Paul Reed Smith Guitars is an American manufacturer of top-of-the-range electric guitars. Based in Stevensville, Maryland, the company was founded in 1985 by Paul Reed Smith, who had already been making guitars on his own since the mid-1970s as part of his music degree. PRS Guitars owes its breakthrough to guitar legend Carlos Santana, who liked the guitars so much that he soon ordered custom-made instruments from the firm. Since then, the product range has grown to include basses, acoustic guitars, and amplifiers. The list of PRS artists is abundant with big names: John Mayer, Mark Tremonti, Alex Lifeson, and Mark Holcomb are just a handful of the signature artists who testify to the quality of PRS instruments.

The sky is the limit

John Mayer and PRS worked together to make sure the pickups and electronics give players all the best of the vintage sound guitarists know and love, but with all the advantages of modern production techniques. So you won’t find them excessively harsh or boomy, but smooth and round. The volume and tone controls let you further sculpt your sound the way you see fit. The bridge pickup has its own dedicated tone knob, for those passages where a warmer bridge pickup sound is required. There is also the two-point vibrato system, another improvement on a vintage design which, along with the real bone nut, ensures better tuning stability even if you like to use heavy-handed vibrato techniques. Of course, the placement of the volume knob allows volume swells to be easy and effortless.

Excelente relação preço / qualidade

A guitarra é leve e aparenta ser mais pequena que as Strats talvez devido à cabeça e forma. O setup vinha no ponto, bem melhor que as Strat Mexicanas. Ainda assim não está ao nível das Ultra, mas na relação preço qualidade, não creio que exista melhor. Os pickups são quentes e volumosos. De tal forma que os tive de baixar um pouco pois estavam-me a fazer confusão, especialmente no ataque da palheta. A ponte está assente no corpo segundo o gosto do JM mas não está mal. A guitarra mantêm-se afinada mais facilmente desta forma e não dá chatices sempre que se mudam as cordas. Pensava que ia ficar desiludido com os plásticos dos afinadores e da protecção do truss rod mas até ficam bem e são de boa qualidade. Boa compra sem dúvida
PROS: Tudo
CONS: Nada em particular excepto o saco que poderia trazer algo para prender ou fixar o braço da guitarra

Amazing
Kamil 42 15.04.2022
There's nothing to complain about. It feels amazing. The build quality is great. Frets shine like crazy and fret ends are superb. The sound is fantastic. It even came clean out of the box - there's no dirt on my finger tips after playing. The only thing that needs adjustment is pickup height.

I wonder if I got really lucky with mine or if they are just that well made.

I really wanted the core version but I wonder how much better can it be than this.. Personally, I'm very satisfied.

Just keep in mind that I don't have much to compare to - I have Classic Vibes and had Vintera for a short period.

PRS Sikver Sky, Stone blue
Fredric E 13.06.2022
After ordering this guitar I had a three months wait. It’s very popular. When I finally got it, in my preferred colour as well. I understood why there was a waiting list. Very complete guitar. A lot of attention to details and the details are at a high level. The mics are exceptional. Very clear and rich. I have a Vintera 60s Strat as well and the SS is so much clearer and beautiful sounding. If you are thinking of this guitar. Buy it. It’s so much worth it. I can not recommend this guitar more. For the price you get a superb and easily played guitar with the PRS quality included. 10/10.

Unplayable due to high 10th fret. I don't understand how this passes quality control... Requested a replacement.
