The PRS "Dead Spec" Silver Sky, a masterfully designed guitar, is a tribute to John Mayer's exceptional performances with Dead & Company on their latest tour. This limited edition guitar, inspired by Jerry Garcia's legendary "Alligator" guitar sound, stands as a testament to Mayer's influential guitar playing. The Dead Spec Silver Sky, a customized version of Mayer’s acclaimed signature guitar, incorporates significant modifications to meet the specific needs of professional guitarists.

“After playing the Silver Sky designed for the 2023 Dead & Company summer tour, I realized the guitar was special. It quickly became apparent this wasn’t just a tool for one particular job but could be extremely versatile in other players’ hands. I’m excited to hear the music that’s made on these guitars.” – John Mayer

Crafted with a premium lightweight Swamp Ash body, a departure from the traditional alder, the guitar boasts an elegant Moc Sand satin nitro finish. This finish not only adds a visually appealing touch but also allows the finish to meld seamlessly with the ash wood grain, enhancing the guitar's aesthetic appeal. The bridge, a key component of this guitar, is a modified version of the PRS patented Gen III Tremolo, fixed to the body to transform it into a string-through hardtail bridge. This alteration enriches the guitar's sound, lending a musical warmth that resonates with every note played.

Further enhancing the guitar's sonic capabilities, the Dead Spec Silver Sky features a brass nut and string retainer bar. These elements work in harmony to augment the guitar's resonance and tonal richness, making it a choice instrument for guitar enthusiasts and professional musicians alike.

One of the most notable features of this model is the replacement of the standard jack plate with a brass-plate Alembic Blaster preamp. This innovative preamp is versatile, functioning as a straightforward boost while also offering an adjustable internal pot. This allows guitarists to incrementally increase the guitar's gain from 3 to 14 dB. This feature not only provides the Dead Spec Silver Sky with an extra punch and maintains clear note separation, but it also compensates for the signal loss associated with using long stage cables. When not in use, the circuit is conveniently bypassed.

With only 1,000 units being produced, the PRS "Dead Spec" Silver Sky is a rare gem in the guitar world. Set for shipping from November 2023 to March 2024, this guitar is not just an instrument but a collector's item, promising to deliver unparalleled sound quality and performance. It is an ideal choice for those seeking a guitar with a rich history, exceptional build quality, and unparalleled sound performance.
