Thread: Real 10 Top or fake?

    Real 10 Top or fake?

    What do you think? It's a real ten top? The little "10" is in a brighter than other serial numbers...
    However, 10 top or not, it's a very beautiful guitar!

    It's a beautiful guitar to be sure. But I'd get a photo of the MODCAT sticker before making an offer. That "10" definitely doesn't match the rest of the numbers.

    Our records show this is a genuine 10 Top. My guess is that the 10 was written after the topcoat was applied, but the serial number was written before the topcoat was applied. Either way, this is a genuine 10 Top

    Imho, many 10 Tops these days are less beautiful than the past, but the one in your photos are soooo nice that could have been considered an Artist grade, so congrats!
