    Does anyone own one of the R0 or R9 Cody burst models from Dave's Guitars?
    Their website pictures make everything look brown no matter the burst color. The one I am interested in I asked for cell phone pictures but again, while better I still do not think they are capturing the color correctly.

    If you have a cody burst, please post a picture of it.

    Thanks

    Mark

    I bought one and sent it back because I wasn't quite happy with the neck carve and overall tone of the guitar. It was a shame because it was a beautiful guitar . It looked like Collectors choice #9. Mine looked exactly like this...much lighter than the pics from daves. Cody burst is the finish from CC9 i was told from the guys at daves.

    2014 1960 Reissue classified as a plain top but has killer figuring. Go figure.. LOL

    That's a long way from a plain top.

    There is a cool story on Dave's website that explains why these are so called plain tops yet they have figured tops.

    Dave told me this burst color is from the guitar on the cover of "Burst Believers" book and is serial 9 0850. (see below)

    The color (going off the video) looks like a cross between washed cherry and bourbon burst. I can't wait to see this guitar in person and play it. Wednesday where are you??

    Just took her out of the box!
    The burst is awesome, the color is fantastic and what I call the exploded quilt is stunning and finally, the fretboard is super dark.
    I will post a NGD tomorrow but here are 3 pictures for you!

    Looks really cool, congrats!

    Does it look closer to Iced Tea in real life, or is it more of a Cherry burst?

    I think it looks like a mix of cherry and bourbon burst. Has more brown in it than cherry but more red than bourbon. It matches 9 0850 perfect
