Yeah, I've been doing that a lot lately and you are right!
Why in the world do things like this make people upset?
At those prices there is a limited market anyway. Probably this will find the niche.
If not, folks will get to buy what are likely killer quality guitars at very favorable prices.
They need to do a gold-over-cherry, with the red dye bleeding through the gold. I've seen several 335s that look like that...
Yeah but Fender really made some of them like that in the early 1960s.
Do you mean the late 60s Sparkling Burgundy guitars? These were sprayed in a similar way to candy apple red Fenders with a gold base coat and a cherry top coat - the cherry often fades under UV leaving the gold to show through. Lots of them today have gold coloured tops and burgundy back and sides. A really faded Burgundy is one of my favourite Gibson finishes.
As did Gibson, albeit in lesser numbers. There have been at least two factory black Les Paul guitars that were just finished Bursts that were oversprayed black.
When you look at the sides (and binding) on these guitars you can see the cherry stain bleeding.
No, cherry bleeding through a new color is a different effect, it's more splotchy. It's hard if not impossible to get rid of all the cherry stain when refinishing a red Gibson, and if there's any left it will leech through the overspray.
I hope they keep making guitars like these and sell enough to allow them to keep making the excellent sub-$1000 USA guitars they've been putting out.
I'd pay an extra thousand each for a repaired headstock and holes from a removed Bigsby.
They're just not being imaginative enough
