Man, I wish they would bring back Washed Cherry--the cherry sunburst color on the new guitars (which I believe they started spraying in 2015) is pure tomato barf.

Washed Cherry Sunburst was way better, IMO.

Man, they all look good. Really dig the Iced Tea or whatever they’re calling it now.

I love the 3rd picture, like the 1st, hate the fade on the 2nd and 4th.

I would think they can do better in their advertising than to grab the title of a book for their header.

Pardon me..i happen to have one of those tomato burst pieces of shit if you don't mind, and happen to like it just fine cup cake.

Mine is not a 15, but it looks like tomato soup. Explain how your examples are the bee's knees and tomato soup stinks.

Those fades are terrible.

I dig that dark and deep cherry on the first one.

The bottom of the sunburst completely disappeared in two of those versions. Did they leave the ass end in the shop window too long? I don't think that was the norm on real bursts.

Those are the "fade" I was saying yes.

It sure would be nice if there was an updated version at some point.

It ain't no Historic, but tomato burst/clown burst whatever you want to call this, looks awesome to me.
I have to confess that those bottomless fades don't do it for me.............:cool:

I'm sure they won't want to hear this but I'm going to have to fall out of love with the two I already have to go shopping. Those two are all I will ever conceivably need, my days of buying just to but something new and "better" are so over in so many things. One can only kind of smile when you think of the guy sitting there back in 61 or 62 with a dead perfect 59 burst or 57 Goldie and reading the ads hearing the patter for the "new modern hip SG" that was so much better than what he already had.

I just got it yesterday...21.95 from Amazon. It's got some good info in it, and nice pics. Worth the $$ IMO.

At that price it's OK, but I think my mate paid $80 for it many years ago..........& at that price no thanks.

I agree there is useful information but the same information is readily available & it is more detailed.

I think my problem was everyone of my mates were going ga ga over the Book & when I read it I thought it didn't live up to the hype.

Maybe I'm just fussy.

:cheers2:
