    Gotta say, mind blown. Quite relieved, I can sell my Fender James Burton signature Telecaster (which has been my main guitar for the past 15 years) with a much lighter heart. This thing has got twang, snap and sizzle of a Tele with the playability and looks of a PRS. Couldn't be happier.

    The 10-top designation is not painted but rather stamped into the back of the headstock, haven't seen that before.

    That's a looker! I'm a little envious of that emerald 24.

    10 gets stamped on rosewood necks too.

    That is exceptionally good looking.

    You know that now you have to finish the rainbow. You’re so close.

    That’s a great looking Hiland! Looks very much a part of your PRS family, too.

    And pretty cool that it can hold serve against the Tele.

    Wow... & the Tele was your main player before the Highland signature?

    Those are PRS Narrowfield humbuckers. Tonally they sit somewhere between a P90 and Strat pickup. Introduced in 2008-2009 IIRC. Sadly they didn't really catch on.
