    Hmm, I did a Google search for those colors, and found an image of two Silver Skys (Skies?) with maple boards, in new colors that could easily be what you list.

    The photo-link itself takes you to a story on a German website about the S2 McCartys, so I am guessing it is a page that went up and got taken down really fast...

    I would post a link, but I suspect the mods would frown upon that.

    EDIT: Just found a link to an actual retailer listing them, with photos. Niiiice.

    "PRS Silver Sky Midnight Rose and Polar Blue" image search. Only two useful results AFAICT, you have to weed around to find them.

    You guys are funny. Here are the two new colors from a quick google. Love the Midnight Rose but wish it had a rosewood board to be honest. Regardless excited to get new colors and maple boards for those who prefer!

    I would be surprised if PRS didn't offer all colors in both fretboard types. I think we're just seeing a few somewhat random offerings as retailers get their websites ready to publish when authorized but accidentally publishing one or two subpages, or not even realizing they shouldn't be "breaking the embargo" yet.

    We won't have to wait much longer to find out the specifics. My Strat style guitars need a maple board so I'm really looking forward to seeing what's going to be available. I was complete indifferent on the Silver Sky when it came out because I didn't see the point. Since then I've played a number of them and came around most of the way. Maple will get me to make a purchase.

    would have already bought a Silver Sky but the fretboard radius was a bit tight for me. Great guitars though.

    I would trade a neck off one of my SS to have a maple one and a rosewood one :)

    Don't know when I will have money to buy another one. it takes 8 years from Swamp ash (2nd)to buy this SS PRS (3rd).
    The 4th in my mind has to be a Hollowbody model...when possible

    And just like that, all the accidental pre-order pages for maple fretboard Silver Skys were gone!

    Of course! I'm pretty sure the PRS team, including Shawn, are either too busy heading to the show or covering for people that are going.

    Also, if the rumors of maple FB and new colors are true, then saying anything will cause trouble. So best stay silent. Whenever this really hits, we'll all have too much to talk about!
