    We shipped the last of the cased guitars on Friday and now the Silver Sky will start shipping with the new gig bags.

    Hopefully that shipment to Canada on Friday had my guitar on it! Fingers crossed I get a call this week.

    As I read your post, this came to mind with guitars flying around (Harry Potter style) and Paul waving a magic wand!



    Not at all wishing to belittle all the hard work that is done on “The Island”. Keep up the great work!:D

    I noticed that Guitar Resurrection here in Austin, TX has a Silver Sky in tungsten listed. One of the first 500. Get it while you can.

    I like the red, too. My problem is that I also like the black, white, and silver. o_O

    I listened to that piece of music every morning before and after heart surgery to fire myself up and be a Viking over the whole thing. Nothing like a little inspiration!

    Well I would definitely say the SS is a smashing success. They're selling for over MSRP on Ebay!

    Since it is not a limited edition guitar, that's For the people who want it immediately instead of waiting and buying it at MSRP!

    Yea in my mind 7.25" and small frets don't work. I like minimally 9.5" or 10" with 6105 medium style frets. But I'm giving this a try for sure.

    A strat-player tries the Sky for the first time!
    He's a true blue Strat player, went from The big F to Suhr. Honest opinions.

    Good stuff.

    What Shawn said. Moreover, listen to beerbatteredphish. He played the same one I ended up buying, and we passed it back and forth for a good while. He's far more knowledgeable about Strats than I am, and he kept saying, "It shouldn't do that." It did not fret out at all - we tried all over the neck to make that happen, and we couldn't do it. And we were getting a full step and a half (and I've gotten two steps at home) all over the neck.

    In fairness, he had more of an issue w/the smaller frets than I did. In all honesty, I never paid attention to the fret size. There are two guitars I have where I notice the fret size. One is the DGT - sometimes I feel the frets on slides up or down the neck. The other is a Les Paul that has really low frets.

    I'm not keen on the horn accent color on the black and silver. I like that the accent is darker on the red one. The white is darn nice, too.

    I've been eyeing the DC3 lately. With a little routing and a new pickguard, I'm certain it can be converted to this (image of regular DC3 stolen by me and abused in MS Paint):

    In my mind, I'm sure the small frets will bother me more than the radius. I'm hoping to buy a Strat-o-type guitar next year, so I'll keep an open mind and try one out once Righteous Guitars can keep them in stock.

    There is no accent on the red one (Horizon).

    No wonder I like it! LOL. Must just look darker due to the effect of the metallic component and viewing angle.

    Yeah, I think so. At least that is what it looks like to me.
