Is the back on the traditional normally all solid black/brown like that? I thkoght they were all mahogany red color?

And he states everything is stock, and I believe him, but the classics I see online all have zebra pickup covers.
The Traditional is Desert Burst. They have dark painted backs. Probably just added covers to the Classic. I have a 2016 Traditional, and it's a fantastic guitar. I vote for the Traditional..

I'd go for the classic. The top looks....classic. The PUs, electronics and the slim neck would also win it for me. I don't like the colour and burst on that particular trad, also the PUs aren't my favourite.

I had a 2016 Trad in lightburst, sold it for a solid black classic. Much prefer it.

I have a 2014 Traditional and it’s my favorite electric. It’s noticeably heavier than my studio and it has a larger neck. My 2014 has 59 Traditional pups that I really like. I don’t know how many years they were used or if it’s a current pickup by another name. Best of luck with the choice that makes you the happiest.

Price difference involved?

I’m a huge fan of the slim neck on the Classic.
Nice-looking top on the Traditional.

Voted before seeing the pictures, based on a generic “A” vs a generic “B”.

Having seen the pictures … the plain top on the classic looks amazing … if it plays and sounds good … I think I’d probably go for that one.
