    I don't know if it's the very first one, but it's certainly an early one.

    1. 2-3 pieces. Joined side by side in the normal way.

    2. The DC3 and 305 were both alder, so it hasn't been terribly long.

    First of all @azzkkr welcome.

    Unwritten forum rule no.1 -

    Photos, or it’s a Hello Kitty!

    (I didn’t make the rule, it’s been here since the beginning of time)

    Unwritten forum rule no.2 -

    As you’re a working musician, I’m hoping that you can upload a clip of you playing?:D

    Enjoy your new guitar!

    I think John Mayer has his hands full, so unfortunately he isn't working in our Final Assembly room. :)

    I've seen the PRS specifications somewhere before and it says 2 or 3 piece Alder body. My Silver Sky is a 3 piece body, you can clearly see the seams under the finish.

    I totally agree with you. My experience with the S.S. compared to the 56, 58, and early 64 echoes yours.

    Anyone else's saddles getting some kind of oxidation? I'm hoping it's not rust

    Here's a shot I just took of my Silver Sky bridge after two practices without getting wiped down before going back in the case.
    Needs a clean up, but should come out OK.

    Most companies charge extra for that. ;)

    The saddles look to be unplated. If that's the case, they aren't going to stay pretty.
