    Gorgeous! Don't know if it's the lighting or what but that looks like a Bourbon Burst or an Autumn Burst.

    I thinks it's only the picture or the lighting but it's a herritage cherry.

    Thanks guys. Actually I bought this online without trying the guitar & just looking at the pictures. Lucky when I receive it & do a test I don't see any flaws except for the pick up height which is quite high so I lower it down a bit. Now I'm enjoying it. Love the grain also.
