“After playing the Silver Sky designed for the 2023 Dead & Company summer tour, I realized the guitar was special. It quickly became apparent this wasn’t just a tool for one particular job but could be extremely versatile in other players’ hands. I’m excited to hear the music that’s made on these guitars.” – John Mayer

Swamp Ash

The core of the “Dead Spec” Silver Sky lies in its lightweight Swamp Ash body, deviating from the traditional alder, and is finished in a Moc Sand satin nitro for a sleek look that beautifully complements the ash wood grain.

The bridge features a modified PRS patented Gen III Tremolo, securely screwed to the body, transforming it into a string-through hardtail bridge. The inclusion of the tremolo’s brass block enhances the guitar’s warmth.

At the opposite end, a brass nut and a string retainer bar contribute to the overall resonance and tone.

One standout feature is the replacement of the jack plate with a brass-plate Alembic Blaster preamp. This preamp, functioning as a boost, comes with an internal pot allowing players to add 3-14 dB of gain when activated.

This not only provides the Dead Spec Silver Sky with added punch and crisp note separation but also compensates for the capacitance associated with long cables. The preamp circuit is bypassed when in the off position.
