    Thanks. That’s what I thought. Was wondering if they’ve done staff reallocation to meet demand. Not that they need to disclose such info, but the curiosity exists nonetheless

    Played live with it for Easter Sunday service today. Full house. Just awesome. The neck and middle position is the most usable I’ve had on a strat. I always favor the bridge and middle position heavily but I like them both equally on this guitar. That Mercury was really cooking today. I have to run it hotter with the SS than I do my 594s or CU24.

    Nice and congrats.
    Yea that sounds about right - about setting the amp hotter since the SS has Lower output vs wthat you're used to.

    This reminded me of something that had slipped my mind. When beerbatteredphish and I were passing the guitar back and forth and talking to Clay (the PRS rep), I was kind of noodling on the neck or neck/middle position, and I reached for the tone knob to roll it back a little as a I played. I have what one friend called "Billy Barty hands", so this isn't a pinky roll as I pick move - I have to reach down and make the adjustment. About 45 seconds after I did it, I realized that I hadn't looked at the knobs when I did it, and I didn't fumble around for the knob - it was just where the knob should be. Kind of a whoa moment for me.

    I'm not sure if this has been asked, I tried to use the search function but to no avail. Does anyone know if there will be a limit to the number of silver sky produced, or a deadline for the pre-order, I'm currently saving up some money as I currently don't have enough to pre-order one (A deposit is required). It will take me a couple of months and I'm wondering if PRS will stop taking orders by then! Thank you.

    Judging by how many of these have been ordered, they'll prob keep making them. PRS usually only stop production if a particular model isn't selling well.

    Nope the silver sky won't be "stopped", it's meant to be a production model to be made available for everyone. Not limited at all. Unless demand is really bad.

    They might come up w some limited edition version of the SS in future. Who knows?

    Agreed.
    It’s a safe bet they will fill all the orders they get.
    So Septomarginalband: save up and place your order. And welcome to the forum. We’ll help you pick your next one.

    Thanks everyone! I'm relieved after hearing that, will keep saving and place an order when I have enough! Can't wait for limited edition ones too!

    yea it sounds great! The conversations were a little awkward to me but it's cool. So glad I ordered tungsten but it'll be a long wait.

    Latest copy of Guitarist mag just dropped through my letterbox. Should be on the shelves in a couple of days. Don’t know how long you will have to wait until you can get it in the U.S.

    Pretty favourable review of the Silver Sky!

    Well worth a read if you can get it.

    Hi guys, any idea how the premium gig bag that comes with the silver sky will differ from the standard prs gig bag?

    Heavier duty, more protection. That was emphasized at the event I was at.
