    I looked at Fender's website and I think you're right. What I've always called two-color sunburst and three-color sunburst are now referred to as mocha burst and ultraburst, respectively. Black is called Texas Tea, which always makes me think of Jed Clampett.

    Marketing. It's what distinguishes us from the animals.

    You’re right, in and of itself it’s perfectly normal. It’s just a strange image to conjure up when naming the color of a guitar. It’s like naming the natural finish “cerebrospinal fluid gloss.”

    (I did think of superheated gas, like a supernova, which would definitely be a cool association to make — but not until much later. Blood was my first thought.)

    I’m just picturing one strange guy in Fender’s marketing department. “Let’s rename Aged Cherry Burst after blood parts!” “Okay, Frank, we’ll call it whatever you want, as long as you don’t come out of your cubicle.” And Frank happily goes back to googling autopsies when nobody’s looking.
