BLACKPINK Rosé gets a beautiful gift from John Mayer!
On July 16 KST, Rosé shared on her Instagram Stories a beautiful pink electric guitar that was gifted to her by one of her favorite singers, John Mayer! She accompanied her story with the caption, "Life is complete," and thanked the American singer-songwriter for his gift.
Not only that, but the guitar also came in with a handwritten note from John Mayer, who also expressed his gratitude to the "On The Ground" singer.
"Rosé! I should be thanking YOU! (so thank you)," said John Mayer in the note.
The electric guitar that John Mayer gifted Rosé is actually a custom guitar designed by the singer himself in collaboration with Paul Reed Smith (PRS) Guitars, and is named "Silver Sky."
The guitar comes in two options of fretboards - maplewood or rosewood. And it seems that John Mayer gifted Rosé with the rosewood variant in the limited edition color, Roxy Pink, that costs more than $2,500 USD.
And the gift couldn't be more befitting for Rosé, as not only is her name in the wood used for the fretboard, but the color - Roxy Pink - is similar to the color baby pink, which is Rosé's favorite color! In addition, Rosé usually uses a guitar as her instrument during performances.
According to John Mayer, the "Silver Sky" guitar is his vision of what a reboot of the electric guitar should look and feel like, in which he included his favorite vintage specifications and added a modern spirit and aesthetic. In order to get where the "Silver Sky" is now, it took John Mayer two years of studying and refinement - which makes the guitar even more special to fans like Rosé!
The special gift came a couple of weeks after Rosé performed John Mayer's song, "Slow Dancing in a Burning Room," in the first episode of JTBC's "Sea of Hope."
