    Ummm. I thought I said it first? Way way way way back in the first SS thread...

    ;)

    I just got all warm and fuzzy on the inside.

    Santa must have read my letter after all.

    There's definitely a new line coming. There's posts on Insta with him with a maple board Silver Sky and a white one with a matching headstock

    True. But he usually never plays a maple board so my first thought would be promo for a new line

    I’m really excited about this, even if it doesn’t come to market.... just great to see Mayer playing a maple board SS live! Shows how much he loves & trusts his PRS guitars.

    If this model is released, it will 100% be my next guitar purchase. I’ll work as much overtime as I need to!

    Like alot of you, I'd love to get the current Silver Sky but if Maple fretboard is in the works, I'll wait. Is the sentiment here the fact that you think PRS is going to come out with a Maple fretboard on this S Sky? If so, ballpark time frame/guesstimate?? thx

    I can see this being in their lineup within another 12 months.

    Kind of what I was thinking. I'm fine with rosewood, think I'll jump on one now. Don't want to wait a year. Thanks so much.

    John talked about maple boards in the very first instagram video he did around the time when the SS was launched. Now having seen this photo, it seems pretty clear that a maple SS will be imminently available. I highly doubt they do an SE SS too...seems wasted on a guitar like this. I definitely love mine, I don't doubt the maple board will be great too.

    A reputable source told me that this is definitely coming next year. So y'all need to start saving your pennies to be first in line.

    I have a 2010 Custom Shop Clapton Blackie and it's awesome? I'll probably end up with one of these if/when maple comes out but can't imagine it will sound better than my Fender Custom Shop. Could be wrong but anxious to see what happens. A maple board would probably make me buy, again..................... can't take it with ya..

    I don’t want a maple board. Word a while back was JM said no PS SS’s. PTC won’t refinish one in a non core color. I asked.

    I love that JM is with the best guitar company in the world. When does my ‘09 SC245 become vintage?
