    about Silver Sky, First I Thought "WOW !! it Sucks" but when i saw Paul Reed Smith talking about it, i understand that building that song was a hard procedure + one of my friends told me that "that guitar has been made for John Mayer Himself, so it is not my business to like it or not" i think about it, & I believe he was right
    it was maybe John's Idea & his request

    but seriously i've surprised as i saw the guitar !! it was like, is it a fender body with PRS fretboard & headstock?
    when i went through the details, i understand, it was a hard process

    good job PRS

    Tall/narrow. Similar to Dunlop 6230

    It doesn't pass the (cork) sniff test.

    I'm actually confused that people will accept glued-in necks. My kids use glue at school, a PRS isn't a 1st grade project! They should carve the neck and body out of a single block of mahogany.

    I'm glad someone thinks it's funny! On the upside, we're now on a much more powerful server, so hopefully the forum feels a little zippier.

    If you'd had bigger fret wire and the regular PRS trem on that server, none of this would have happened!

    You don't see Gibson's servers going down from big interest... :eek:

    6230 is small wire, actually, like what was used on vintage Fenders. I had one Strat with the 7.25" radius and that wire and it did get annoying at times. Wouldn't do it again. Give me 9.5" and 6150 or similar and I'm a much happier player.

    This is a key spec to me, and will be to a lot of players whether they realize it or not yet. Anyone coming into this thing expecting the usual PRS feel will be disappointed. It's important to understand that you're buying the feel of an early 60's Fender.

    I’ll play the first one I find, with enough cash in my pocket to carry it away.

    Guitar has 22 frets yet has the owl on the neck. Is there a bird missing elsewhere?

    you must show a picture when you get it . or your order # so no bullcrap.
    an introductory price for forum members of 1800.00 would make it fly off the shelves..

    For safety issues they removed the crow so haters wouldn’t choke on it after liking the guitar.

    That's puny wire and seals the deal as for not getting one. Is it playable? Sure. Will it sound great? Sure. But, I don't like to fight guitars after working on a computer all day with fatigued hands as it is. Vintage wire is just too much finger drag for me on the fretboard.
