Got 'burst? Show 'em...


Recommended Posts

Playing around the house w/o plugging in while working on chord voicings.  These sound great unplugged, especially the hollow 525 w/the 'reverb adding' tailpiece.  535 I believe is 'sunset burst'.  Can't recall the 525 burst flavor... natural burst?  But anyway, 'bursts have the best tone...  :)

Nice pair of Heritage's there Randy ... Enjoy!  A great thing to be doing while we try to dodge the polar express.

Vintage burst - yes, think that's what my 525 is.  I really like how Heritage bursts look - great examples!

Thanks, Gianluca. 

The floating pickup on the Golden Eagle is a custom wound Kent Armstrong 12-pole PAF.

All of these beautiful bursts!!  Great thread.

@Yooper...I thought ASB was Almond Sun Burst.

ALSB is Almond Sun Burst. Antique Sun Burst must have been designated before Almond. I still don't get how they came up with that nutty description. I see it more as a faded cherry. The run quite a spectrum of colors. I have a translucent "Amber" 535 that looks very wine red. Who am I to disagree with what's on the sticker?

Faded Cherry is what's in my avatar.   There's no "burst" to it!

This would be a Marv Burst because he did this as a custom burst for this guitar. Marv also rolled the neck for this one, I know because he called me to come up to Kalamazoo to try the neck in the raw. I'm not sure he knew it would be a 400 mile round trip for me. I had a Fab time.

Yeah, and to my eyes, if that Faded Cherry had a burst it looks like it would be ALSB.
