    Love those older classics! And I must agree with you on the red backs especially with vintage yellow!

    Do you really need to know anything more than Troeg’s is involved?

    Very nice work, however it’s not complete until you’ve wiped her face with the condensation from a bottle of champagne!;):D

    I doubt customer service will have info on such an old guitar, but IMHO that top stands proudly next to the Private Stocks in your collection.

    My 89 LOOKS like it should be a 10 top but I can't find a 10 on it anywhere.

    I have 2 customs from 1991. So this one looks very familiar :D The tonecontrol instead of sweetswitch was an option and so was the trem uproute, the 10 top and the gold hardware. And the "10" on the tip of the headstock is very hard to see on mine also.
    And congrats on the christmas tree. well done :p

    I think there are other examples of 10 being found in the pickup cavity, but not on the headstock. I think the consensus was it means they were potential 10 tops but didn’t make the final grade.

    10, non-10... sometimes easy to tell. Sometimes not so much.

    I get more confused when it comes to Artist Package, Wood Library, etc. my new 509 AP does not have a 10 on the headstock.

    p.s. I call thos mineral streaks voodoo veins. Very cool top.

    Hey Red Guitars...I don't think the "10" was ever noted/marked on Artist Package guitars...and I'd assume the same for Wood Library...???
    Those Tops should be nice enough so its not necessary.:D:D:D

    Correct. Artist trumps 10.
