Flame or plain top doesn't matter to me. The natural grain of the wood is most important, in looks, for me. I've never cared for that super enhanced flamed top look even though many do. A killer plain top with great wood grain is just as killer or more impressive IMO. Flame at certain light angles with the wood grain showing through is super cool too.

Favorite finish has to be VOS dirty lemon/unburst. I've always loved it, even before it was so popular, but I do love a few other finishes also. The right cherry, bourbon, or tea finishes look amazing to me also. It really just depends on the individual guitar.

It depends on the guitar for me, but I really dig heritage cherry/washed cherry sunburst with nice grain plain top, or flame top, but it depends on the flame pattern. I do prefer VOS though.
