I have been playing guitar since the age of 11, and I have played a lot of different brands. From Fender to Gibson and Cort to Kramer, the range of brands I’ve used and owned is crazy. But when I picked up my first Paul Reed Smith (PRS), I was in love. I currently own four PRS guitars, and the long-awaited PRS Silver Sky SE could be my next addition.

The PRS Silver Sky SE is the more affordable version of the PRS Silver Sky Core model. The Core model was built with John Mayer and designed to fit his tone and needs. But as with most Core PRS guitars, they cost a pretty penny. That’s why PRS has the SE line of guitars to bring some of the same features to a more affordable price point.
Many of us have been begging PRS to make the PRS Silver Sky SE, and I was so impatient that I built my own out of a Strat-type body and a third-party PRS neck. While it works, it’s not the same quality or tone as what you’ll find on the real deal. In the video below, John Mayer goes over the new PRS Silver Sky SE and gives us a peek at what we can expect.
