Guitar World Verdict

For the PRS player, the Fiore comes across as a ‘beater’, a guitar to play out while those posher guitars stay safe at home, and could easily draw in other players who want to taste and feel the quality PRS proposition without the bling or price tag.

John Mayer’s signature Silver Sky needs no introduction. However, bolt-on electric guitars go back to the very beginnings of PRS when the company was far from the household name it is today.
