    Just released at NAMM. New maple fingerboard options for the Silver Sky and a limited run color shifting finish. I'm leaning towards getting a polar blue with maple FB but the Midnight rose one just looks so nice I may get that instead. I'm a sucker for maple fingerboards.

    oh dang! both the polar and rose look great. The only thing that may have been better looking on them would be a solid rosewood neck.
    I'll definitely be getting one of these this year.

    Midnight rose with maple is sharp! Definitely think they look better with the maple neck. Somehow doesn't look so PRS if that makes sense.

    It looks a little like a Fender Stratocaster.

    Given it's a Mayer sig and has been out for 3 years now that is surprising how :lol:

    Yeah it looks like what would have happened if PRS invented the Strat instead of Leo Fender.

    These get the best finishes. Really wish some of these solid colors would bleed over to different lines.

    Yeah I also wish the nebula hadn't been so limited as well. I would love to grab one but didn't want to do it yesterday :lol:

    I'm a fan of the midnight rose myself. Add a matching headstock and wawaweewa!

    I never realized the Silver Sky has a reverse headstock?

    Midnight Rose with the Maple board and outline Birds looks really good.

    Does anyone know what the routing under the pickguard is?

    It's a standard S-Type top route and not a swimming pool.

    The silver sky looks so much better with maple. It's nice to see the PRS is expanding on their bolt on offerings, even if it's just by a little bit at a time.
