    Making my rounds to today, and this one got in my way.

    It was way too good a deal for me to pass up, so I HAD to bring it home.

    No good guitars will left behind.

    This one has the wide thin neck which is a great fit for my hand.

    The pickups aren't the greatest pair, but I'm familiar with the Vintage Bass and HFS pickups.

    These are the same as I have in my '88 Goldtop Special.

    This baby should be good to go a good with some new strings, intonation, and string height setup.

    After that's all done, I'll be able to put it through it's paces.

    Here's some pics I took at the shop.

    No Treynor, I think the AL color is more reddish in color.

    Since you're asking, I picked it up for $1000.

    I figured if a new '19 PRS SE Custom 24 is about $800-$900, then paying 1K for a vintage 10-Top w/ Birds is a pretty good deal.

    Does "10 top" refer to the amount of birds?

    I know nothing about PRS guitars. It looks bitchin.

    The 10 top has to do the quality of the wood used on the top of the guitar.

    If the top wood is of high quality figuring , then they give it a rating of 10.

    Judging from recently finished ebay auctions I'd say you did very well.

    A couple of outdoor pics of the purple flame top to get a better idea of what it looks like.

    What part of the greater Houston-Gulf area are you in, if you don't mind sharing? There's only a couple of pawn shops I know of up here in the NW side (out of Houston city limits proper) that ever have anything more than beginner level Squiers, BC Rich, and First Act. And the few that do have good stuff price them like they're made from a piece of the true cross.
