    I was just reading an old thread (https://www.tdpri.com/threads/what-ever-happened-to-the-color-antiqua.928274/) on this color. I know many would just as soon puke as look at or think of making anything that looks like what they would consider pukeburst. But I kinda like it and kinda know haters just gonna hate, and would appreciate hearing your ideas on how to finish a custom amp cabinet with that or a similar burst.

    I have no idea where to get formulas for Antigua.

    For finishing ideas, search for pictures of sunburst finished amplifiers. I'm pretty sure the Fender CS made some, but it might have been Gibson. Gibson definitely made a hard left turn into the ditch when they marketed sunburst studio monitors.
