    Not talking about any fading, that doesn't bother me. Although, mine is always in the case too so it's ready to grab to head to band rehearsal. Mine has yellowish tint that bugs me. Oh well, I guess it has a more vintage vibe.

    I’ve a Santana that has a slight yellowish tint too - seems to be in the clear coat and not the wood. It happens. And yes I also feel it adds a vintage vibe. :D

    Santana stoptail?!?
    Did I not know, or forget you have this one?:confused: Awesome. This is more the norm for the triple faded finish. The pale one is cooler IMO.:)

    It was its turn at Tonart’s guitar spa today. Some tender loving care, dusting down and tuning, and I am rewarded with glorious crunch tones.

    When I take photos that I get reminded how beautiful these guitars are. The rainforest swung by today.

    Oh good lord, that’s a monster top! Just a hint a micro mineral streaks for extra character below the trem. Love the inlay choice and the headstock eagle is unique with the MOP wing in between the paua. And it’s got a trem! :) Has this one Faded a bit? Haven seen a rainforest color look like this before. Gorgeous!
