As I age, I grow ever increasingly more crotchety. The latest burr under my blanket is the sunburst finish. It started with the dreadful watermelon sunburst finishes of Rickenbackers decades ago. Even as a young lad it was extremely repellent. Now as time has rolled by one wretched decade at a time; it's any sunburst finish, be it violin, antique, vintage, cherry, reptilian, rotten guava sunrise, sunset, Two colors, 3 colors, purple hazed or T.V. Dog Urine Yellow. Milk finish, clear finish, solid color finish, transparent finish, natural with oiled finish seem to be more or less, much more interesting and less tedious than the threadbare, once trendy finishes from the odoriferous moldering catalog of Sunburst-Pedia.
