    Most companies call that tobacco burst.

    Lonn got it right. Most Tobacco Burst had more dark color around the neck area, I like them done this way better.

    Hmmm.. I'm thinking Dark Vintage Maple. However the top can fool you, flipping from light to dark. So, it might be Honey Amber.

    I think both are killer looking colors for a Tobacco/ Desert Burst.

    Ibanez does a similar finish on their AS153. They call it "Antique Yellow Burst". I like it a lot.

    It sorta looks like what Gibson calls Desert Burst.

    Honey amber is my vote. It's a nice warm brown, I've used it under red translucent and it looks classy. If you want it warmer add a drop of lemon yellow or two
