The OP's (dscottyg) flame (the technical term for this effect is 'chatoyance' (taken from a french word for 'cat's eye' because of how it changes as the object moves, giving it a 3D-like appearance) is minimal. However, even though the 'lines' are very narrow and have relatively wide spacing, are very well defined, and as truckermde said, very tasteful. the burst itself has a very gradual transition and the overall coloration is very nicely executed. While it's not the greatest example of flame, overall, I think it's a very attractive-looking guitar. But let's not take our eye's off the prize, because what really matters the most is how it plays and how it sounds, because that's what's most important unless you're just going to hang it on the wall and use it for a piece artwork, which really isn't what guitars are ultimately made for.
