    For me it's one of the best looking runs. And the consistency seems to be great. Plain tops help, I guess. :hmm: :laugh2:

    Every aged and VOS I saw so far looked great. I like a plain top for a change (even seem to prefer them recently aside from a few types of flame tops which are hard to come by) and think the burst color is niceā€”not a clown burst, slightly more "classy" than Washed Cherry but not approaching Iced Tea.

    Moore and Kossoff's don't seem to be much cleaner to me. They're quite "dirty" too. I can totally see, why someone would say that though. I get it.

    I think the difference is the very first one has a 3 piece top and is more a Goldtop in build and the Slash one is the normal 2 piece top

    Thats why they are both kinda the first

    Correct me if I am wrong just what I have read
