Don't know.One thing I haven't seen discussed anywhere is how the Silver Sky neck compares to JM's Fender signature guitar series neck. Does anyone know?

There’s been quite a few reports of cracked switch tips on arrival. Maybe it’s a result of it shipping in a gig bag, idk.Got the Silver Sky from Washington Music (hint, they have a special thing going with PRS...buy from them). Guitar is amazing! Curious if anyone has had an issue with the cap coming off the five-way. Very minor detail, but unaccepted from a guitar less than 24 hours old.

Email PRS customer support and they will send you a new switch cap.
I think the newer ones have copper shielding strips added to the underside of the pick guard. Mine does not have them, and doesn't seem to need it in my environment.I didn’t pay too much attention before, in regards to the static when touching the pick guard, but I’m getting some now. Was there a solution to this other than using a dryer sheet?
I had a bad volume pot that caused the same problem. Replaced now and all is well.So I found a blemished Silver Sky on Musiciansfriend. Ordered it. Got it. Played it one night and loved it. Went to play it today and there’s hardly any output from the guitar. I have to crank the amp to get even a weak sound out of the PRS. I took off the faceplate and did not notice any bad wiring or anything visible to the eye. Does anyone have any clue what the issue might be? And of course I’ve tried different amps, different cables, etc.
I’m at a loss here. I don’t want to return it if I don’t have to.
Glad that it showed up and stole the show. Congrats!Okay folks. I have spent the last few posts complaining about not getting my pre-ordered SS, but now I have it in hand. I got it a week ago. A couple of notes: The neck is curly maple, which is a very nice touch. It sits in the rack by three fenders. I find my hands gravitating to the guitar with the curly maple neck...a lot. The feel of the guitar is familiar in my hands. I have a Strat with a JM signature neck that I have played a ton before I got into PRS Guitars. Playing them side by side, I can see why JM likes the SS and wanted that neck profile. Very easy on my hands. While the fretboard radius differ, they feel remarkably the same in my hands. When I plugged the SS into my rig, it sounds awesome! With and without effects. Also, playing the guitar unplugged, it is louder and rings out impressively compared to many of my other guitars. Perhaps it is a testament to the wood drying process used at PRS (I know they get very technical on wood drying to maximize the tonal quality of the woods they use). I was one who wasn't sold on the headstock shape, however, I don't even care bout that anymore after playing it for a week. To all who told me it was well worth the wait...thank you...it was.
I've got one of the first 500 with case, and it has been super solid.I got a Silver Sky, LOVE the guitar, but definitely a bit frustrated with it and here's why:
*I bought the guitar in November from guitar center, and was given the wrong PRS gig bag and tremolo bar. Guitar Center said to remedy this I need to return the guitar, which then needs to be shipped back to PRS. Since I love the guitar, I'm just going to buy a tremolo bar at this point.
*Number paint came off the volume control also instantly too, not really concerned since it doesn't effect operational.
*The pick up selector switch cracked pretty much instantly, which bummed me out because I saved up a bit and traded in gear to afford this. It's definitely the most expensive guitar I bought, so this cracking was disappointing. I'm going to follow up with PRS after reading on this thread that they have helped other people.
*Static popping, i thought I was crazy and even bought new cables, I see on other people had this issue so at least it's not in my head.
*Neck becomes loose. This is the worst one to me, i've never had a bolt in neck guitar so I'm nervous about this. I emailed PRS who told me to contact my dealer (guitar center), who told me over the phone to tighten the screws. I did it once, and now 2 months later it is loose again. Is this common for bolt on neck guitars? Is anyone else having this issue?
None of the problems really are deal breakers because of how awesome the guitar is except this neck issue, I'm neverous the guitar might have a serious problem. Let me know if you've seen this problem! 102 pages of thread was a lot to review, so I haven't' gone through them all...yet.
