"It's been a dream of mine for years to design a guitar that includes some of my favorite vintage specifications but with a modern spirit and aesthetic. After two years of study and refinement, the Silver Sky is my vision of what a reboot of the electric guitar should look and feel like." – John MayerLearn More
The PRS Silver Sky is the result of a close collaboration between Grammy Award-winning musician John Mayer and Paul Reed Smith. More than two and half years in the making, the Silver Sky is a vintage-inspired instrument that is at once familiar but also newly PRS through and through. This model was based off of Mayer and Smith’s favorite elements from 1963 and 1964 vintage instruments, resulting in an idealized version of a vintage single-coil guitar. The attention that was paid to every detail sets this guitar apart.
Some of the more distinctive specifications include, the headstock shape, tuners, neck and fretboard, bridge, and pickups and electronics. The headstock shape is based on PRS’s trademark design, but inverted to both accommodate Mayer’s playing style and also to keep a consistent length of string behind the nut, which makes staying in tune easier. The tuners are a traditional vintage-style, closed-back tuner, but with PRS’s locking design. The neck shape was modeled after 1963/1964 vintage instruments, and the fretboard has a 7.25” radius. The moment your hand grabs this neck, it just feels right. Like the tuners, the steel tremolo takes a classic design and incorporates PRS’s trem arm and Gen III knife-edge screws. The bridge on the Silver Sky is setup flush to the body in the neutral position so that the tremolo bridge only goes down in pitch. By keeping the bridge in contact with the body, the guitar itself is acoustically louder, which improves the signal to noise ratio of the single-coil pickups. The 635JM single-coil pickups are very round and full, with a musical high end that is never “ice-picky” or brash.
Other high-quality specifications include a bone nut, a molded metal jack plate that is curved and makes plugging and unplugging a guitar cable hassle-free, retooled knobs, fretwire that is slightly smaller than what you’d find on most PRS electric guitars, and PRS’s double action truss rod (accessible from the front of the headstock for ease of use).

Featuring a beautiful hand-rubbed antique varnish finish!Learn More
The idea of buying a new guitar straight off the rack, that is comparable to the great vintage Gibson J-45 models, is pretty mind boggling. The idea of getting a pro-level acoustic with all solid wood construction, hand-rubbed antique varnish finish, and Adirondack Spruce top for under $1300, is also mind boggling. The Eastwood E10 SSv is totally comparable to the old Gibsons in sound, tone, playability, and looks...and that is just a wonderful thing. This is a really serious guitar. It's not that it's great-for-the-money, it's just GREAT.

It's been a while since Taylor's last run of Brazilian Imbuia limited editions, and it's a shame because Imbuia is among the finest sounding tone woods they've used. Good looking too, bursting with striking, dark variegation and complex figure. This 2002 414-ce Fall Grand Auditorium has ivoriod binding which dramatically accents the body contours, Sitka Spruce top, and Imbuia back and sides It's in excellent condition with some light surface scratches and dings on the top back and sides. The neck is straight and true. The frets are excellent, near perfect condition showing only the very slightest hints of being played. A Fishman Prefix Plus preamp and pickup system makes it gig ready. It sounds great plugged in and unplugged. Tonally, imbuia's hardness and density yield a tight, crisp, responsive tone, with nice sustain and plenty of low-end thump. Comes with original Taylor hardshell case.Learn More

Comes with original hard case.Learn More
The DGT (David Grissom Trem) is the result of more than 20 years of collaboration between Paul Smith and David Grissom. The DGT is based on the McCarty with a unique DGT neck shape, taller frets, special pickups, and a revised control layout. Grissom and Paul spent a year A/B-ing more than forty sets of pickups before nailing the vintage-voice of DGT humbuckers. When paired with individual volume controls for each pickup and a push/pull master tone control that operates the coil taps, DGT pickups provide versatility and articulation.
“The DGT is a product a lot of miles down the road: a lot of gigs, a lot of records. It’s like picking up a vintage guitar. It sounds like a vintage guitar, and out of the box it’s ready to go. There’s a whole lot of thought gone into this. The DGT is pretty perfect to me.” – David GrissomLearn More
