The PRS Dead Spec Silver Sky is a peek into John Mayer's illustrious Dead & Company tour and an homage to Jerry Garcia's legendary "Alligator" guitar tones. Derived from the innovative minds of PRS Guitars and crafted in collaboration with Mayer, the Dead Spec Silver Sky is a limited edition, totally unique, limited instrument that will excite both players and collectors.
The foundation of the Dead Spec Silver Sky is rooted in its lightweight Swamp Ash body, a divergence from the traditional alder. Finished in a sleek Moc Sand satin nitro, this thin veneer beautifully melds with the ash wood grain, making a visual statement, furthered by a rosewood fingerboard topped with iconic PRS Birds inlays. Its Flat Top carve takes the guitar's aesthetics to the top notch, presenting a contemporary but timeless look.
The Dead Spec sports a Maple neck, with a distinctive 635 JM-R profile, and offers a comfortable playing experience with its 7.25" fingerboard radius and PRS Medium Wire frets to ensure precise intonation and easy navigation across all 22 frets. Equipped with three custom 635 JM pickups - bridge, middle, and neck - the Dead Spec Silver Sky makes sure player's tonal palettes are as versatile as the player themselves. These pickups are truly the heart of the Dead Spec, delivering crystal highs and deep, thick lows: a signature of John Mayer's tone and playing. The Satin Nitro finish adds a touch of elegance while allowing the guitar to breathe, upping its tonal resonance.
In true PRS fashion, the Dead Spec Silver Sky is not just an average guitar, it's a unique expression of craftsmanship. A modified Gen III Tremolo, now surface-mounted for a string-through hardtail setup, delivers a new warmth and resonance. The brass nut and retainer bar contribute a piano-esque tone, while the totally unique Alembic Blaster preamp with a brass-plate jack plate introduces a touch of magic, boosting output and halting the cable capacitance conundrum many players find themselves in, with adjustable gain.
With only 1,000 of these available, the Dead Spec Silver Sky is also a collector's item and a piece of PRS history, marrying technical precision with artistic flair.
