1 Strummerson 7 months ago You knew it was coming. Was thrilled to see the responses to my Wine Thread, celebrating other beloved finishes. Proteus' Candy Apple Red thread collected some really stunning and unique guitars. Suprdave's Darkness in the Abyss thread provided a platform for the particular elegance of black guitars. Bob Howard's thread produced a pageant of lovely natural blondes. I've loved all of them.So, now onto sunbursts! Lots of variation here. I know that some have been called 'tobacco sunbursts". But I've never been a nicotine man. So, I like to call my 1940 Epiphone Triumph a "whiskey sunburst".Anyone know how sunburst finishes first came about? Was it an aristotelean happy accident? Here's my Triumph. My most regularly played guitar these days. Both acoustic and plugged in.
