Name This Finish

Recommended Posts

[attachment=23679:IMG_0404.JPG]

Anyone care to venture a guess as to what finish my '04 Epi Plus Top Standard is? When I bought it the finish was labeled Honeyburst. Doesn't look like any Honeyburst I've seen (which I don't honestly care for). To me it looks mostly like Desertburst. Any ideas?

Bourbon Burst
[/quote]

I am more inclined to agree with that than honeyburst or desertburst.

Never heard of bourbon burst. After checking out some examples I don't think so. Mine is actually red near the edges fading to an amber in the center. If I post another photo of it in sunlight it's very apparent. I'll just have to wait for the sun to come out.

Oh Lord, Epiphone has resorted to using photos instead of finished wood for their caps? Is there any way to determine which Epiphone models are now using photographs instead of maple?
[/quote]

Yes, I'll help you determine which models...None, Epi doesn't do that and has never done that. They use a veneer. Rev 6/SGplayer is a bizarre troll from France. He has several accounts on this forum and several others. He posts pics of guitars from the internet and acts like they are his and has an odd obsession with telling people how horrible their Epiphones are. You must not be too quick on the come up to not know this. Just look at his Sig. Edited by Supersonic

I wonder what trolls did before there was an Internet. Write crap on the inside of bathroom stalls?

Yeah mate. This kiddie used to call himself SGplayer and I think (though could be someone else) it went that his mum helped him buy a cheeseburger Gibson SG or something like that and his kink is to troll Epiphone on some superiority kick. That he thinks it's funny after so many repeat efforts says it all, but that's cool. (suggest ignore or swat but not take notice).

I think Mr. Rev 6 may be Orville Gibson's illegitimate great, great, great grandson. He's miffed because he was stiffed out of the family dynasty.

After more checking, I retract my previous opinion and am inclined to agree with you. I guess it's bourbon. Thanks.

Sometime later I sent the serial number to Epiphone with my query, they told me according to their records this guitar has a honeyburst finish. Just glad it doesn't look like standard honeyburst. Wouldn't have bought it.
