The new SE on the block

electric guitar PRS SE Silver Sky Ever Green 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.

Den Impulskauf nicht bereut! :-)
Xcase 22.04.2022
Trotz vieler Vorschusslorbeeren auf den diversen YouTube-Kanälen, geht man als "early adopter" immer das Risiko ein enttäuscht zu werden, was aber hier nicht der Fall war. Im Gegenteil. Ich hatte sofort das Gefühl ein für diesen Preis sehr wertiges Instrument in den Händen zu halten. Die Verarbeitung ist makellos, und ich ich habe wirklich jeden cm2 abgetastet. ;-) Das Setup war zumindestens für mich perfekt. Laut beiliegendem Anhänger wurde im PRS-Europa HQ eine Überprüfung inkl. Setup durchgeführt. Meine Erwartungen wurden mit diesem Instrument voll erfüllt, bzw auch ein Stück übertroffen.

La strat version PRS !
Trollsawyer 07.05.2022
Cherchant une strat pour accompagner ma Les Paul tout en évitant le traditionnel « fender » je me suis mis à la recherche d’un modèle dans l’air du temps et je suis tombé au bon moment avec la sortie du modèle plus abordable de la silver sky de John Mayer.

J’adore l’artiste, mais je suis particulièrement fan d’avoir un modèle « signature» même si pour cette guitare cela est plus du modèle unique car elle a aucun égal chez PRS. Certe sa reste une strat standard mais apporte quand même son lot de différence avec les fender ( tête, manche et micro ) pour ressentir une sensation différence et très agréable à l’écoute.

Le manche mat est très pratique à balader et super bien fini comme tous le reste. Petit bémol au choix des mécanique de tête en plastique qui font cheap mais reste solide.

Pour ce qui est de la couleur evergreen celle ci est plus vers anis que vert mexico ce qui n’est pas pour me déplaire elle est magnifique.

Um diesen Preis eine absolut hervorragende Gitarre.
Kalex 14.06.2022
Super eingestellt, nichts schnarrt. Die Saiten klingen bis in die obersten Bünde sauber. Bespielbarkeit ist über jeden Zweifel erhaben. Die Tonabnehmer klingen, wie man es von einer Strat erwartet.
Diese PRS braucht keinen Vergleich mit wesentlich teueren Instrumenten scheuen. Was PRS hier auf den Markt stellt, ist absolut Top. Sowas würde man sich bei Fender in dieser Preisklasse auch wünschen.

WAUW, wat een geluid.

De pickups zijn geweldig. En de gitaar hals is geweldig afgewerkt waardoor hij erg soepel speeld.

Afwerking in de body is oke maar wie maakt dat wat uit!
Voor dit geld is deze gitaar een droom.

Ik word mentaal geprikkeld door de soepelheid van de gitaar, Ik heb er ook .08 snaren op gezet voor een moeiteloos gevoel.

Echt een aanrader.
