The art of the Burst

There’s something about a sunburst finish. At some point, all of our guitar heroes have been seen sporting a burst S or T Type and from there the seed is sewn.

And what makes them so much more special to us is we love to spray them. We take extra care to prep the wood for these finishes, accenting the grain where possible or simply leaving it more neutral as per the customer’s request. Staying true to the varying nature of the swamp ash and alder that we use coupled with the constant evolution of the burst through the iconic eras, no two bodies are exactly the same.

Below are some of examples of nitro sunburst bodies we have done.
