NAMM 2021 isn't taking place in the physical realm this year, but you'll find all the hottest January gear launches in our guide to the biggest guitar, amp and pedal releases of 2021 so far.
PRS has announced its latest limited-edition John Mayer electric guitar model, the Lunar Ice Silver Sky.
Like the blues pin-up’s previous limited model, the Nebula, this Lunar Ice version features a polychromatic ‘flip-flop’ finish, which reflects light differently at different angles. Just check out the photos below – bling bling.
This also marks the first limited-edition Silver Sky to play host to a maple fretboard – a feature that was introduced at NAMM last year – inlaid with small versions of PRS’s trademark birds.
Otherwise, the guitar is spec’d as per Mayer’s usual Silver Sky setup, with an alder body, trio of 635JM single coils, a steel PRS tremolo with Gen III knife-edge screws, as well as a reverse headstock.
Just 1,000 of these limited-edition Silver Skys will be made available worldwide. There’s no price confirmed yet, but we’d expect at least $2.5k.
