What an awkward thread.
This is what happens when everyone's bored while waiting for their Silver Sky's.
I don’t think my shop received any guitars to ship today
If not, that’s sad
I'm not sure either but I remember Bono once describing the Edge's Strat sound as the "Silver" tone or sound. It's always stuck in my head so I'd wondered if it stuck in his too... anyhoo, just a long shot.
Someone brought it up earlier in this thread that the first protoype was the tungsten colour. John loved it and named it Silver Sky, and hence it stuck since then. Haha.
Bummer. I'm not sure if the dealer I bought from will get enough. I was the third Tungsten order. We'll see!
Great video. Why don't single coil guitars sound this way when I play them? Sounds f^ckin' great. I love the deep dive into the details of the guitar. He does an excellent job explaining the reasoning behind everything. Oh yeah, it sounds f^ckin' great.
I know they wanted modern colors, but for me, the best color for anything strat-like is and always will be Daphne Blue.
And yet I’m thinking it’s Mary Kaye translucent white.
Here’s to hoping the shipment comes in today. I’ve been looking forward to today since November 2017. I’m first in line for a tungsten at my dealer.
A new video by Thomann
With gold hardware?!? Maple neck?!?! That would look goooooooooood, albeit (ahem) historical.
I want that digital dB meter in the background...
I wonder which on is the one I rubbed my junk on......I hope it wasn't yours!
Right with you on this Les, some translucent color palette will be very fetching.
I am also a Daphne, Sea Foam, Sonic kinda guy (the Leo era 63’ in my Avatar is LPB) but I’d like to see PRS offer retro colours that are similar to the classic vintage Fender colours we (Fender / vintage dudes) know and love but still uniquely PRS. So Fender has Lake Placid Blue, Gibson has Pelham Blue...ATM at least. Maybe something like Ballistic Blue which is a bit more sparkly (vintage automotive candy apple type of of blue) I don’t like it more tthan the the other colours mentioned but it sits loosely in that general ballpark. I’m just trying to make a point, There are many possible subtle variations in tone when it comes to colours. Though I guess if he PRS did a Daphne one for example but called it sky blue or baby blue I wouldn’t care and would probably buy one thinking that as with the guitar, Paul’s gone with tones that are period correct and while they are two sompletely different animals, PRS has done everything possible so that the guitar has appeal’s to “Big F” purists, PRS lovers and those others looking for their first boutique S-Style guitar that appears & sound simply superb.
Gotta remember it’s not a Strat.
Hanging out for the phone call that says, “Hi is that C..ven . Leigh from The Rock Inn here mate, Your new PRS Silver Sky (Tungsten) has arrived when do you want to pick it up”? Ring damn you, ring !!!
Same here! Gonna be me for the next few days at least.
