Strangely enough, I like it! for a bass or strat or tele, not a les paul, but a VIP or VW would be very cool with this!

It's nice and artful. Just seems to be getting away from the 'natural' "high quality figured wood" concept. I assume you have employed an airbrush artist to do the shading with these bursts? Very cool as an art form! I just like natural wood enhanced by clear coats or subtle bursts. A guitar to me is like a fine piece of furniture, and beautiful figured woods are appropriate, but not necessarily the "wild" paint schemes.. Perhaps these new burst art forms are geared more towards young people that want more attention. Should pan out well for future sales but not my cup-o-tea..

hi, the 'shading' you see, is something from the wood itself, its not done by an airbrushartist or something. First, they rub on a colour, lets say black Then sand it of. Green is applied, its rubbed off. Then yellow (I presume) and this recipe will be repeated several times.
I'm not a painter, unfortunately. A friend of mine is, though, and this can be done quite simply, and its just done with colouring (perhaps powder-based colouring that is soluted in water?).
so, resumé: its not done by an airbrushartist, but just with colours.
