    Looks more like "Sepia Burst," and I dig it.

    I dig the Suhr version of Antigua burst a lot.

    I wish he made 30 inch scale basses as that would be a rocking color to have.

    Like I said, polarizing. Even sometime among one person LOL!

    No such thing as a good version of that color. Looks like the ceiling tiles at the bowling alley by my house. Looks like there were some leaks to boot.

    I had an Antigua Strat back in the early 80’s. Back then I thought it looked badass. Now, not so much.

    I don’t think it has anything to do with who makes the guitar.
    Really ugly finish, reminds me of bad 70’s avocado appliances

    Are you kidding me ! I'm not a fan of the original Fender Antigua and even less of the 2 tones sunbursts in general but this Suhr interpretation of the Antigua Burst looks amazing !
    ...and I must be right because my Mom always told me I have very good taste.

    Now I want a polyester leisure suit, but can't decide on green or tan. Either way I'd get a lot of attention!

    It looks good. It’s a classic finish.
    Not my cup of tea, but it looks cool.

    Did you get your '79 new? I remember my Fender dealer having one back in '79 and it was much closer to the Suhr version, but it was a touch grayer/less brown than that photo of the Suhr. They greened up really quickly when exposed to light, smoke, etc.
