    I know a lot of people find the classic bursts a bit ordinary, maybe even boring, but I love the classic look.
    If you love the bursts, share 'em if ya got 'em.

    Any preferences on 3 color burst vs tabaco burst?

    I like both and never have decided which I like best it is a tie to me, I think the tabaco has an older vintage look to it generally depending on the particular guitar.

    My MIJ 90s Squier has a 'burst body (not, as it turns out, original to the neck) but it is a really lovely finish on a really nice two-piece body IMHO... Screenshot_20211128-125902-281.png Screenshot_20211128-125808-982.png

    Beauties! Am I the only one who likes 3TSB faded to almost 2TSB way more than a mint-looking 3TSB?

    I also prefer the faded 3TSB. The left one in my OP is faded 3TSB.
