Another question: what does "dark" mean exactly when in front of a burst name?

i.e. dark bengal burst, dark fire burst, etc.

Do you guys add more black grain filler or is there something else going on?  Obviously they look darker, but I guess mine is more of a mechanical question.

An example of the dark bengal burst tele that prompted the question.

Dark means it came out darker than normal. We weren't trying to, it just happened to come out that way. When people spec their bodies to have finished I want to try and do all I can to make sure their expectations are hard right or hard left.

Cool.  It amazes me how two pieces of the same type of wood can come out completely different with the same treatments.  Thanks Gregg.
