I think it’s cool just the way it is. My things are stuff like: does it have any really obvious dead spots? Does it ring and sustain well? Does the neck angle look Ok? Does the board or binding have file marks? Does it have a rich tone acoustically or does it sound thin?you're completely right I picked "not a flamethrower" I wanted a subtle flame, a little flecks - like the dealer pic. I just got a little bit surprised how one side of it shaded and blanked out (while the other side is popping more than I really signed up for). The feedback here is really helpful. I happen to like the paint a lot, and it plays and sounds great (nut slots a little high but easily remedied). I feel 95% to keep it - I don't want to keep sending guitars back and forth from CA to Indiana only to wish in the end htat I kept the first one). thanks
If it it passes those questions, I figure I‘ve won a mini lottery and accept the natural wood variations with no qualms. If you decide to keep it, those good qualities will win out and the top becomes a character maker.
