Hi forby, welcome to the forum!  Here's a partial answer

D - dreadnaught body style/shape
10 - series
S - solid top (sides and back are laminated)
Z - ???
NAT - natural color top

Pricing is pretty variable. You did not say if you bought new or used or the condition if used, but look around on the internet and you can get a good feel for what they sell for.  

Guitars, I have a few - but then again, too few to mention

Hi Forby, yep, what Greg said. I believe the Z stands for Zebra wood. Here's the book info on D10S's...

D10 S
- similar to the D10, except has a solid spruce top, available in Black or Natural finish, mfg. 2001-
present.
Grading

MSR $350 $245 --$150 - 200 ----$90 - 120

Hi lads  the zebra wood sounds plausable for the z as the sides and the back are stiped and the binding is a cream colour a very nice looking  guitar and it cost me about$ 75 including a stand digi tuner and a decent gig bag so not a bad deal   regards  forby
