    I was looking around for something PRS related and I came upon a picture like this and was wondering what color it was. Turns out this used to be Royal Blue. I was pretty blown away by the amount of fade.

    Nature is freaking crazy. Who knew that wood, stain and sunlight would lead to such beauty.

    Nice score. I saw that pop up on GC used section a few weeks ago. I would have loved to buy it but I fell for Jet White Mira instead. I had a faded blue CE as well, it was a CE24 and it had the nicest color I've ever seen on a PRS. It looked different depending on the lighting and certain angles really brought out the color.

    Krimson, really great looking top, almost silver. Interesting indeed what happens to blue...

    It was basically the "10" top of the CE line. Pretty sweet!

    And apparently, judging by photos others have posted, there are 10-top and non-10-top 3-piece tops. Which makes a 3-piece 10-top a 30-top, using "math."

    Mine is not stamped "10" but I have seen pics of at least one that is.

    FYI- That 3 piece top should outlive any 2-piece in existence! Great axe!

    The figuring would definitely warrant a 3A - 4A rating most definitely!
