PRS JOHN MAYER SIGNATURE SILVER SKY ONYX

The vintage-inspired guitar brags a familiar shape with an eye-catching complementary color in its cutaway scoop – insert its axe to any tube amp, and it’s sweet-sounding single-coil pickups will blend out smoothly, musical tones with excellent note definition.
A vocalist, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter of the biggest heavy metal band of all time, James Hetfield of Metallica is known for his mighty right hand and precise rhythmic execution.

Including bolt-on construction along with a comfy basswood body with thin U-shaped maple neck, the GH-200 gives you Gary Holt’s split rectangle inlay design and 22 extra-jumbo frets. This sleek-looking guitar also offers an ESP designed LH-301 pickup set with red cover, a special bridge, Floyd Rose for your most extreme leads and red binding on the body and headstock to complete its looming ambiance.
The classic SE custom 24 now comes in an edgy Floyd Rose 1000 Series tremolo makeover. We dare you to dig into the Floyd Rose Tremolo and pair it with ESP’s SE HFS and Vintage Bass pickups – not only you would love the sound that will come out but so does your neighbors, we bet. This tremolo is Korean-made with the same design and high quality materials as the “Original”.

The LTD WA-WARBIRD is excellent for any genre of music where high-performance guitar playing is a must. It offers set-thru construction, with the neck extending into the guitar's body cavity and offering smooth and fast access to the highest frets.
