I like the relic job, but the exposed wood areas I would of made it a more grayish brown instead of just leaving in plain bare. Neck got no Relic thou? hahahaha! ok, just add cigarette burn on head stock, voila! cherry on top! hahaha!
I'm sure the Silver Sky is a nice guitar, but I don't get the concept of a relic on a guitar that has only been in production for a couple of years.
Not my favorite look, but the Internet probably has more important things to explode about.
Plastic no relic either. Should have called Dan @ Danocaster.
Lol $400 more for it to look f'd up lol sucker born every minute
Who did the relic job?
The PRS factory?
rusty springs yet a pristine pickguard and pickups. this one was not well thought out.
and ... that headstock ...
Remove the 'utility/reality' aspect from it.
The intention is to create a look, decoration to affect a mood, perhaps adding a desirable feel.
The market has responded. It's cool.
Way too silly!!!
Some guitars are just not meant to be relic'd. Though one could argue, some guitar shapes are not meant to have pointy headstocks.
I don't have a problem with a relic job on anything, though I agree it's a little strange to put 20 years of wear on a guitar that's been available for a total of 18 months.
The problem here is that the relic job isn't very good. The springs are rusty but the bridge plate is pristine? There's wear all along the cutaway but the pickguard is untouched? A little logic goes a long way on a relic.
Guitar has loads of wear and finish checking..... Shiny chrome, plastics still shiny and bright white. To me, thats just lazy. Fail.
I actually like relicing, albeit only to a limited extent, and I really like PRS guitars (see avatar), but that looks ridiculous.
no, it looks like it’s an aftermarket relic job they had done by someone.
Like most relic jobs, it's obviously fake, but so are most others. We all knew this was coming anyway, though it did start as a joke. Well, it's still a joke.
I don't mind the idea, but that's IMHO an awful relic job
