John Mayer presents a lovely gift to BLACKPINK Rose!
Rose shared a pink electric guitar she received from John Mayer on Instagram Stories, July 16, at 10:59 AM KST. Rose captioned her story “Life’s complete” and thanked John Mayer for the gift.
John Mayer also sent a handwritten note to John Mayer thanking him for his support of “On The Ground.”
John Mayer wrote in his note, “Rosé! I should be thanking YOU! (so thank you),”
A special Electric Guitar!
John Mayer gave Rose an electric guitar, but he designed a custom guitar in collaboration with Paul Reed Smith (PRS Guitars). It is called “Silver Sky.”
You can choose from Maplewood or rosewood fretboards for your guitar. John Mayer gave Rose the rosewood variant of the limited edition color Roxy Pink for more than $2,500.
Rose couldn’t have chosen a more fitting gift. Her name is in the fretboard’s wood, and the color, Roxy Pink, is very similar to Rose’s favorite color, baby pink. Rose also plays the guitar during her performances.
John Mayer says that the “Silver Sky” guitar is his vision for how an electric guitar reboot should look and feel. He used his favorite vintage specs and gave it a modern aesthetic. John Mayer spent two years studying and refining the “Silver Sky,” which made the guitar even more special for Rose.
Rose had performed John Mayer’s song “Slow Dancing in a Burning Room” in the first episode of JTBC’s “Sea of Hope” a few weeks before receiving this special gift.
