What is a 10 top?
A very small percent of the maple trees cut in North America are actually figured. To make “10-Top” status, a PRS top must have clearly defined figure across its entire top. A guitar designated as a 10-Top will have a small “10” written on the back of the headstock in the upper right corner. Some of our earlier guitars have the “10” stamped into the finish in the same position.
The following options are included when the 10 top option is selected:
• 10 Top flamed maple top
• Hybrid hardware, No hardware upgrade on Grainger basses (nickel hardware only)
• Core finishes only (see below). Excludes DGT and Paul’s guitar (limited color selections)
