    And I just realised this:
    The PRS MT15 was some kind of landslide, as far as I received it. The presentation video of it was published on Youtube a little more than a month ago. Now, the Silver Sky has accumulated circa 30000 more views in one day, than the MT15 in one month:

    I was just wondering along those same lines. With the apparent huge demand here, I hope PRS can grow sustainably to meet the need. It could end up being a good thing for PRS and their employees with added staff and internal promotions.

    Andrew, our videographer, put together this little promo for the Silver Sky. Nice job Andrew!

    Poly body and nitro neck. I’ve never seen that before. I wonder what the thought process was there.

    Old CE’s were like that too. Maybe it’s all about the feel of a nitro neck mixed with the durability of a poly body?

    So, PRS announces a new guitar model and immediately the howler monkeys start to howl, “it’s too this. It’s not enough that.”

    Never mind that none of them has even seen one in person, much less played one...

    I didn’t know that, either! I wasn’t around back then :D

    It wasn’t because they were “cutting corners!” They tape the cavity and go through that effort in the body! I think that’s a cool touch; maybe as the body gains and loses moisture through the open wood it will “check” over time. Who knows.

    Just a reminder, mine was preordered yesterday. I’m not complaining in any way. I just love the details and the thought process behind the design and build.

    It was one thing to read the clueless rants in the many other unofficial threads about this guitar (now consolidated in one massive squirt of a thread), but seeing the moaning in this thread...

    So it's taboo to mention the retail price of the guitar here? ;)

    I'd prefer whining to a snarky keyboard warrior any day of the week personally. :D

    I dunno, I've wasted enough money in the past 30 years looking for a "Strat" that works for me. Including $2500 on the last one from a boutique builder. I'm not bragging, or anything like that. I just mean that I love the sounds so much that I am willing to look high and low for something that works for me. So far, I haven't had much luck. I trust PRS enough to try one out. At the end of the day, if the SS doesn't work for me, I'll finally be convinced that nothing ever will. Based on my past purchases, I have that much confidence in Paul to get it right (for me). If he can't, I'm confident that no one will.

    I have no issues with the guitar itself (other than wishing there was routing for HSS), my other reply was in response to the moderator editing out it's retail price from my earlier comment about how it comes with a gig bag instead of a hardshell case. I have kids at home so I need bulletproof ways to store them! :D

    Our hosts (PRS) prefer we don’t, but at this point we all know what it costs anyway.

    Amen. I’ve owned a countless number of “Strat” guitars over the years, and PRS finally made 90% of the guitar I needed with the DC3. Hopefully the SS does that for a few people that wrestle with similar problems.

    I’m fairly certain my son has been chewing on my Mira.

    I can't begin to describe the stuff I've cleaned off the horns and pickups of my guitars...he's 17 months old so I'll let you use your imagination...he absolutely goes ballistic when I let him strum the strings with me so I try to encourage that as much as possible and keep my winces as internal as possible! ;)
