    Any idea what this kind of flame is called?

    Thank you for the info! Nervous about buffing it, do you think just polish with enough elbow grease would do it?

    Any idea what this kind of flame is called?

    So, I'm considering seeing if I can get this thing to gloss up. I wrote Gibson and they confirmed that it is a Custom Authentic. Wondering how much of a Dif it would make as far as the transparency of the finish goes. I generally prefer a glossier finish, love this one as is, but am curious...

    Any idea what this kind of flame is called?

    Any idea what this kind of flame is called?
