    Looks like a different day of the same color. ;)

    Being a little slow on the uptake, I thought the thread would be about how different colors effect tone to the ear, not the tone/hue/to the eye. ;)

    I prefer... not... BSB... I know I’ll have to probably turn in my Tele card, but BSB is probably the only finish I don’t like... at all...

    Sure seem to be more light present in the top, look at the knob shadows of each comparatively.

    Me too — I couldn’t stomach BSB, sunburst or Antigua on any guitar these days. Although I’ve owned several ‘bursts so clearly my tastes do alter over time!
