I’m trying out a new series on Chasing Sound today called Inspiring / Inspired. This inaugural edition goes three guitarists deep. We’ll talk about how Hendrix inspired Stevie Ray Vaughan, and how both guitarists ultimately inspired John Mayer.
“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 Mayer
PRS announced the official release of the new John Mayer signature Silver Sky guitar. The guitar has a bolt-on neck, comes in four great colors, and looks like the PRS version of a Fender Strat.
PRS has been on a roll this year, releasing all sorts of great products. The Mark Tremonti signature amp announced at NAMM sounds incredible, and this new signature guitar was so popular that it broke PRS' site the other day.
