I know I've seen pics of the original Brock Burst guitar and some modern bursts and love the colour, its possibly my favourite. Can anyone define what it is? I presume its called Bourbon now for legal reasons?

Doing a little research here and I've answered my own question, I think.

The (complete) Les Paul body on the right is the original Brock guitar. It has a darker colour red than cherry burst and the red never quite leaves the burst, even in the middle there is a slight tint.

Here's a pic of some lucky guy's BrockBurst R9:

Am I on the right track? Anyone got a pic of a Bourbon?
