John Mayer Makes a Special Appearance for PRS at NAMM 2019!

We made our way in, and soon after the room was packed to hear the man behind the excellent Silver Sky guitar speak. John came out with Paul Smith to introduce the new colors, and gave an inspiring talk about keeping the electric guitar as modern as possible - just as we look to see cars, watches and sneakers be a contemporary forward-thinking industry we need to see guitars as that way as well - and we couldn't agree more!
