The PRS SE John Mayer Silver Sky topped this year’s top seller electric guitars list on Reverberation (opens in a new tab)with the original American version still in fourth place on the chart.
Elsewhere, it’s another relative tour de force for Fender’s Mexican-made Player models; Last year’s number one seller, Player Telecaster, fell to five, with the Player Strat remaining number two for a second year. It’s joined by the American-made Fender American Professional II at number three.
As we go, there are more votes of confidence for guitars made in the USA with Gibson staples. But value remains an attractive proposition with many high-end and entry-level Squier models.

Squier reveals the strength of its diverse catalog in the best selling guitars released in 2022. While the PRS SE Silver Sky naturally takes the top spot, it’s interesting to see the Squier Classic Vibe Baritone Custom Telecaster at number two.
The demand for the unusual continues with Fender’s bold Player Plus Meteora HH and Yamaha’s hugely underrated, mid-priced Revstar II models taking two spots in the top 10.
Polyphia’s Tim Henson continues his success in 2022 with his Ibanez TOD10N – a mid-priced nylon-string acoustic-electric guitar that was only recently released but is still number five here.
