    I love that PRS lets its oddities out into the world. Do they just occasionally share a list of random stuff that dealers can buy, with no real explanation? That's how it seems to me. For instance, my CU22 reportedly has a Pattern Vintage neck, was completed late Dec '16, and then Righteous Guitars bought it off of PRS about six months later.

    Update:
    Just came back and re-read this thread, want to add a few things...

    1] My first post came out way more rude and... dickish than I intended. I want to apologize to the OP... sorry dude!
    Congrats on your new gittar! I hope it brings you much happiness! And if the S2 "10" top thing is legit, then extra bonus!

    2] As for my ZM, I really got lucky on that one. And even though it's a veneer top, that's still real wood... not like it's a photoflame print deal.
    And lastly, for a "thin" veneer, it sure looks impressive around the edges... even if that's a maple cap the veneer is attached to.

    I emailed PRS Customer Support this morning and this is what I got back!

    Hi Colt,


    Thank you for contacting PRS Guitars. We made a handful of 10 Top S2 Customs as a test run for a possible 10 Top option. In the end, the 10 Top option was never implemented, so only the handful of these guitars exist.


    Thank you for your continued support of PRS Guitars. I hope you find this information helpful.

    I’m pretty stoked to say the least!

    It’s all good! I have the same problem unfortunately :rolleyes: I get accused of that all the time. You do have a really nice looking top on your ZM, even if it is a veneer!

    I’d stick that note In my guitar case. Nice piece to own.

    It has been printed off and a screenshot has been taken in the phone. Ha!

    I still can't believe I scored something cool like that, especially a PRS. I never get that lucky.

    Looks like the maple under the veneer has some figure in it. That’s pretty cool. I got lucky with the neck on my ZM.

    Ugh! Now that’s a real sunk cost! Sorry, couldn’t resist. But they had insurance on it, right? :)

    They did indeed. “General average” is a peril that is covered by marine insurance. That means voluntarily abandoning overboard to save the ship. I don’t think that was the case here, but I still think that’s interesting. It’s one of the few insurance claims where intentional is not an exclusion.

    Still worthy of a gold sharpie 10, in my opinion. And as Steve says, figured timber under the veneer gives the impression of a solid top. Very nice:D

    Who is this Shawn Nuthall, what are his credentials?!;)

    Beautiful looking guitar Colt, great post and updates from GMTRAV and Shawn.
