Hey Don't forget too, there was a see through green on Tulipwood (errrr) and a natural butternut as well.  And I could be imagining this but I thought I remember hearing about a reverse ice blue burst???  I think there have been a couple of purple bursts also.

Carmi, look at the 3rd item in the "Show Us" section of the board.

Bucky, thanks. I've incorporated the photos. Regarding Gold and Antique Gold, I also do not see a difference that could not be accounted for by the variations in lighting and color balance of the photographs. (Similarly, there are some photos that are undoubtedly the same finish but that look quite different. For those cases, I have often included two or more photos because these variations help give a better idea of the true color. See Italian Plum for a radical example.)

So... my procedure favors getting a sample up with a label and making corrections later. When someone posts a photo and gives a description, I am seldom in a position to second guess the info. For example, I have taken at face value the description "Purple Sunburst" - a non-metallic finish - though I cannot tell from the photo whether the finish is metallic or not. The photo variables are one reason, my own limited knowledge is another. And, in the case of people submitting photos of their own instruments, they tend to know what their own guitars are, if they have enough interest to be posting here anyway.

Sometimes the provided description does give me reason to question its correctness. Sometimes the description that I am given and use on the posting comes under question by one of you. In these cases, I will probably use a "?" in the description until I see a definitive post or a consensus. This does not mean that I feel disdain for whomever has provided the description or raised the doubt. It is a matter of preferring to have something included while sparing myself a series of re-editings of an unsettled debate.

The moral  of the story is to be encouraged to share knowledge and opinions, but please do so in a genial manner. (Not that anyone has not done so - it just tends to happen in chat board circumstances.)

Also, I am not trying to assemble an album of all of our instruments. I am picking and choosing for the one-to-three images that seem to best depict the different finishes. In some cases a single image is perfectly sufficient, such as the ones for the Four Seasons series. I am not particularly looking to include unusual hardware, woods, or historical interest except as they bear on the various finishes produced by Parker. Other threads will be more rewarding for pursuing those interests. I know that the first of us to get one of the Four Seasons is going to be sharing photos, and we are going to be dying to see them, but they probably will not show up in this thread.

So... Please do submit any photos of missing finishes and better photos of depicted finishes, but please do not be put out if your baby does not become a finish example.

Not a problem at all. Except that such a great-looking guitar deserves its own thread.

Is that your guitar in the photo with the "Satin Koa" label? If so, as I recall, you did this as a Custom Shop item but finished it afterwards. Is that correct? Was there any stain used or just a clear, gloss finish?
