I likely should have been more specific. It is a feel and playability thing. NOT a tone thing. The tone is great on both. The feel on the Tangerine Burst is good and previously I was thrilled with it, but after getting my Trans Black one, I find myself wanting SOMETHING more from the Tangerine Burst--I just can't articulate what that is. As far as looks, as some have mentioned, the Trans Black is really a head turner--BUT the Tangerine Burst simply does not photograph well. She is also a stunner--just in a different way. The Trans Black is like a woman who walks into a bar and every guy there snaps his neck, not noticing her friend--but by the end of the evening everyone is staring at the friend (the Tangerine burst). Remarkable 3 D flame that changes color at every angle. The color representation on the photo above is far more "burnt orange" than she is in real life. More of a lemon-orange burst. Again, the 3D nature of the finish is one of the reasons she is SO remarkable.
