Paul Reed Smith Silver Sky
Basically a vintage-flavored S-style filtered through Paul Reed Smith’s aesthetic, John Mayer’s new PRS signature model authentically nails the feel and tones of a pre-CBS Strat, while benefiting from a number of modest yet meaningful refinements. The materials and workmanship are remarkable, and if you can hang with hybrid looks and intelligently modernized features, the Silver Sky presents an impressively made, superb-sounding alternative to an early-’60s Stratocaster.
