    Anyone else other than me:
    1) craved for a DGT after watching Rob Harris play one?
    2) feels that the Silver Sky is the perfect instrument for the style Rob plays?

    Same problem with mine.

    I thought it was a grounding issue but I checked the wiring and all is good. After doing some research, it seems a common thing with plastic pickguard/single coil equipped guitars. Especially in the winter when relative humidity in your house is crazy low.

    Easy but short term fix: rub the pickguard with a anti-static sheet (the ones you put in the dryer). This reduced for me the pop static sound when touching the screw by 95%.
    Long term fix: completely shielding the back of the pickguard (I don't know why they did not do that with the Silver Sky but only the switch/pots area is shielded). But maybe it would be better to contact PRS customer support first...

    I tried to replicate this on mine - no dice. Did not happen for me.

    Maybe my personality's just not electric enough.

    If anyone is having an issue with a new PRS guitar, please contact your dealer. They can assist you in getting the problem resolved.

    When I had an SE EG I had the same issue with static. Usually made a pop when I touch a screw on the pick guard.

    Is there any Silver Sky badging on the gig bag or is it an existing gig bag that is already included with other PRS guitars? Thanks.

    Isn't PRS to resolve the problem?

    The guitar sounds good, she looks good but it's very disappointed from PRS considering the price...
    How Rene Martinez fix it for John Mayer?

    For you send the guitar to the US from France would be a a big headache for you. Your dealer in France can work with PRS Europe to resolve any issues you may be having.

    That's what I did and they told me that it happens a lot with single coils and that most people used to PRS with humbuckers are not used to that kind of static pop sounds. So it is not a problem according to my dealer.
    Why PRS is not simply saying it to end the debate on this thread? Unless PRS considers this should not happen? Can you please clarify the position?

    Say what? We can arrange to have the guitar brought back to the factory for an evaluation. Please send an email to the customer service department to make arrangements.
