PAUL REED SMITH SE SILVER SKY MAPLE
Reach For The Sky
The SE Silver Sky Maple is a familiar iteration of the original Silver Sky model that was first introduced with John Mayer in 2018. This workhorse guitar provides ample tone and playability in three distinct colours, delivering looks, feel, and sound.
The PRS SE Silver Sky Maple starts with a poplar body, bolt-on maple neck, and maple fretboard with PRS trademark bird inlays. The 22-fret, 25.5” scale length neck features the original 635JM carve and an 8.5” fretboard radius, so the PRS SE Silver Sky will feel right at home. Plug it in, and the three single-coil 635JM “S” pickups will bark and sing. This guitar is anchored by a two-point steel tremolo, synthetic bone nut, and vintage-style tuners. Other design features include the PRS Silver Sky inverted headstock shape and the PRS double-acting truss rod (accessible from the front of the headstock for ease of use). Ships with PRS Classic 10-46 strings and gig bag.
- Poplar Body: Often likened to Alder, Poplar is comparably balanced in sound with a slightly lighter feel.
- Bolt-On Construction: Produces a snappy note response for an immediate playing experience.
- 25.5″ Scale Length: Provides optimal string tension; letting you dig in for funky “New Light” style chords while allowing for soulful, expressive string bends.
- Maple Neck with Original ‘635JM’ Carve: Based on the same custom neck shape used for Mayer’s USA Silver Sky. Features a satin-style finish for a smooth and natural playing feel.
- 8.5″ Fingerboard Radius: Offers a slightly flatter and more contemporary feel than the vintage-inspired 7.25″ radius on the USA Silver Sky model.
- 635JM “S” Pickups: Designed to capture the sound of the single-coils in the American-made Silver Sky, these pickups “bark and sing” according to PRS!
- 5-Way Pickup Switching: Provides a wide sonic palette; letting you isolate each pickup or combine the middle single-coil with the bridge/neck pickups for those classic “in-between” tones.
- 2-Point Steel Tremolo: A reliable bridge that enables smooth vibrato whenever inspiration strikes.
- Vintage-Style Tuners: Possess a classy, traditional look and allow for precise string pitching.
- Included PRS SE Gig Bag: High-quality design ensures solid protection for the instrument.
