Sorry for being annoying, but I’m uncertain on this finish. Maybe Bourbon Burst? Seems a bit dark for Iced Tea. Too light for Dark Burst. Probably not an Allman Burst. Thoughts? Thanks in advance!

Hmm, the red/brown colors dont seem to have enough purple hues in them to be a bourbon Burst, but it very well could be the lighting.

Unless it’s a special run, it pretty much has to be bourbon. VOS finishes that year were faded tobacco, iced tea, lemon, sunrise tea, washed cherry, and bourbon.

I don't know if you have experience with 2012 style Custom Shop Historic cases,..... these have the 6 latches and very similar to the original '50s cases.... 5 latches are flip up and only one is a hoop latch. Just a heads up. Not that there is anything wrong with them.
