    Changing Saddles on the core silver sky.

    So what’s your thoughts on the saddles of the core silver sky? I’ve always rested the palm of my hand on the tremolo, as i tend to use it for fast tremolo use! But constantly find the grub screws scratching or cutting me, even though they aren’t rough or sticking out that much. I know that’s...

    I wax potted my core Silver Sky pickups

    Hello! My first post please be gentle. I had to wax pot my 2022 moc sand silver sky pickups. I found them to be very microphonic, the pickups were picking up even the minimum occasionally pick hit. If bumped the pick on the pickups, the pickguard or even the body I would hear it very loudly on...

    Silver Sky truss rod wrench

    Recently got a Silver Sky Core model and it didn't have the truss rod wrench. Where do I get one? I have a Silver Sky SE also, but the SE wrench does not appear to fit in the Core. I guess I need a truss rod wrench specifically for the Core model?

    Silver Sky Setup/Tremelo

    I recently purchased a used Silver Sky Core off reverb. Had some minor condition issues, but it looks like it has been setup to float the tremelo, and thus has the saddles much lower than where they should probably be. I don't use trem much, so I would actually like to deck this and raise the...

    SE Silver Sky vs Sterling CT50SSS Cutlass

    I'd like some honest opinions from anyone who may have tried both? I am on the fence about this one. I already own three PRS guitars and am considering adding a Silver Sky. However, I have heard some say the Silver Sky sounds a little darker than a typical strat. I played around with a Cutlass...

    How is the SE Silver Sky's pickups compared to something like classic vibe strat?

    Apparently they're somewhat darker than typical strat pickups? They're measured at 7.5k across all 3 pickups. Classic vibe is very bright. They measure at 5.8k neck, 6.2 middle, 6.6 bridge. I'm thinking about combining classic vibe pickups with one of JM635S so it goes 6.2 neck, 6.6 middle and...

    NGD SE Silver Sky Maple Summit Purple

    Just got this in! Excited to compare it to my Stone Blue one I got a month ago. First notes here when I plugged it in. Overall, slightly larger neck profile but still the same Silver Sky vibes.

    PRS Phase III Tuners on SE SS

    I was looking for a way to mount the Phase III tuners on my SE SS without seeing the footprint from the previous vintage tuners. I came across these little mounting plates from Graph Tech. They are mount plates meant for the GT Ratio Tuners but worked well with the Phase III tuners. The only...

    Are the new Silver Sky guitars fully nitro finish?

    I see all kinds of different stuff about this but I am just wondering if you all know for sure. I bought a Roxy Pink that arrives in a few hours and I'm curious, is the pink finish fully nitro, some sort of different nitro, or is it poly and only the back of the necks are nitro? Anyone?

    Hi guys, New member of the forum here! I have decided to buy a PRS guitar, and I was looking for some advice from people that have played different models. A little bit of background - a few months ago I managed to try a maple Silver Sky, and the moment I touched the guitar I felt in love...

    PRS Silver Sky Maple neck - Why JM don't use it on live? Or I'm wrong

    Hi everyone I'm writting from Spain. I have 2 PRS SS, one from 2018 in Horizon Red with rosewood fretboard. Other from 2021 Moc Sand Satin with maple fretboard. In my opinion with the two guitars, I like more the rosewood. In terms os sound is almost the same, but little better for me the...

    Silver Sky, Cleaning Mold

    Hello Everyone, After working on my Silver Sky this weekend, I discovered a lot of mold under the volume knob. We had a gig this past summer that was humid and misting, never thought to clean under the volume knob - but I'm sure this is when it happened. Anyway, I pitched the volume knob...

    Silver Sky with a Brass Nut?

    Hello All, I am very close to pulling the trigger on a PRS Silver Sky John Mayer Signature. One upgrade I'm already planning on making, is switching out the factory nut with a brass one (Jerry Garcia had brass nuts on most if not all of his guitars) . I did this to my Mexican Strat and I...
