Looks like they were going for today's interpretation of a '30's burst. Close to these.

Looks like I did it!

What sort of guitar are we looking at Drathbun? That saddle is high!

Take a look at the link, it's a Chinese knock-off, a G45VS model. I'm sure you've played many of those, BK.....🤪

Sorry, must have been blinded by all the letters in the link.

I have a Chummingbird In black finish that looks way, way better than the one above, but in reality is only a guitar shaped object. A friend had one ‘custom made’ by a friend of friend who is a self proclaimed acoustic guitar expert who boasted his Chummer was better than the real thing. Mine arrived with the tuning machines on back to front! I asked my luthier if he could fix them and he had a set of Kluson tulips I got him to put on, plus a 50s DeArmond soundhole pickup I had. These are the best parts of the guitar, which sits in its case as a decoy guitar in a highly visible position near the door to my music room for the crooks to take!

I expect this is the result of an over-eager sunburst spray painter.

 

That's not the way to do it!

Now, this... is the way....

Whoa, a Norlin clown burst version of a 1930s finish.

But as first place is already taken, you guys will have to limit your fight to a second place trophy.

‘Woof,   that is one of the coolest bursts.  You’ve shared that image here before, but worth seeing again. Almost looks like an Argentine burst. 

 Love the tiger effect.
