According to popular belief, there are two opinions of how these finishes actually originated. The first idea is that a solid color was applied to conceal a finish that was either damaged or flawed during the production process. The second is that since sunburst was standard on instruments made during that era, the factory would apply a secondary top coat to the original finish whenever a customer requested a custom color.
Each Classic Antique Finish Over Finish is accurately painted to recreate these unique finishes by applying a solid thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish over a 3-tone burst, and then carefully aged to expose the two distinct finishes.
Limited to only 200 instruments worldwide, the Classic Antique Finish Over Finish is available with a Rosewood fingerboard, in an H/S/S or S/S/S pickup configuration, and five nitrocellulose lacquer finishes; Black, Candy Apple Red, Fiesta Orange, Olympic White and Surf Green.
