    I'm a sucker for Cherry in any Gibson-style guitar

    I have a 2018 Cherry Epi SG, and I used to own both a Cherry Dot and a Casino ( years ago, and at different times) which I needed to sell- I want the Casino back!

    Burst. That’s what called you.

    Unless the red is a better guitar. Then red. Because you don’t seem to have an overwhelming color preference.

    I have a sunburst Epi 339 and it's a thing of beauty. Both red and burst are classic for sure, but sunburst is classic classic.

    When @FenderGyrl recommended the Grote 335-style guitar in 2019, I immediately went online to find one. I've wanted a cherry-red 335 since the 1960's, but all Amazon had was vintage sunburst. I ordered it, and took it to my tech for a setup. He fell in love with it, but they were sold out, so he couldn't order one himself. We agreed that if they came back in stock, I'd grab one for him. A week later, they had a cherry one available. (I suspect it was a return.....it had a TINY flaw down at the bottom bout) I ordered it, and it came in fast, and was (is) beautiful. I took it to my tech, and he agreed to set it up at no charge, and pay the Amazon price, in exchange for the sunburst one. Either one would have been awesome, but there's just something about that cherry finish.......;)

    Unless it is a Gretsch off course, then read ACA61FE8-2328-4A36-A74A-402381564466.png 8A760951-DC57-45D7-94FD-F610135C91BD.png
