    This is my only complaint. Not super stoked about being battery reliant...but that's good to hear about the longevity. i'm assuming it's a 9v under the pickguard...

    I don't think I've ever changed my battery either. It isn't a big deal. The silent circuit is well worth the price of a one dollar 9V.

    After playing a Silver Sky...I liked it...but elected to go with a more budget friendly (and lets be honest, I havent met an EBMM neck that didnt feel right) used 2016 Cutlass (white with maple board).

    Thanks a ton for all the feedback. Buying a guitar online, unplayed is nervewracking to say the least, but I feel confident that the quality of the brand will make this a pleasant experience.

    I will post pics when she arrives.

    She's out for delivery and I've already got the itch!

    SSS vs HSS...those of you with both, do you have a preference?

    I've always been a humbucker guy, so don't want to prematurely run out on the bridge single, but for the price I think I won regardless of whether I convert it or not!

    A bit late on the thread so Congratulations
    My take would have been The Silver Sky has a 7.25" Radius which is why I sold both my older Jap Strat and Tele both having the same radii.
    If you prefer a lower action 7.25"radius is not for you.
    Over the last 35 years I've had Strats of various flavours from Artist signature Clapton version, ,USA Deluxe,USA standard ,Custom shop Jap,Mex,versions etc and the Cutlass blows them all away.
    I sold ALL my Fender strats when I got my hands on a Cutlass.10" radius ,Stainless frets, almost silent single coils and the neck is out of this world.
