Ed Sheeran has been kicking up a storm with his own signature Sheeran by Lowden acoustic guitars in 2019, but tonight saw him take to the stage with John Mayer in Tokyo and play 2018’s biggest signature guitar, Mayer’s PRS Silver Sky.

Check out the video of the pair playing Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud above, which includes a solo by Mayer. The stars also collaborated on a version of Mayer’s Belief during the concert at the city’s famous Budokan venue. This isn’t the first time Mayer and Sheeran have performed together in public – 2015 saw them unite on The Late Late Show for a version of Sheeran’s Don’t.

Do Mayer and Sheeran’s explorations in the world of signature guitars represent a new era in the musical instrument industry? Find out more in our recent opinion piece on the subject.
