    I love all colors. Really wanted a blonde (natural) or red, but the sunburst I tried and got sounded pretty good so it came home with me.

    I like all traditional Gibson 335 finishes.
    I have these two and have had several others before;

    Not usually a big fan of the traditional bursts but I can live with it on a 335/clone. In fact, it looks so good, it even looks good in black and white!

    Or if you prefer, the more colorful version:

    Very difficult to choose between Red, Blonde and Sunburst.
    All 3 colors look good on a 335, my friend has all 3.

    Hey, Bluesjuke: Can you tell us more about this one?

    I tend to gravitate towards blonde and red thinlines, but that it THE perfect sunburst!

    Burst without question. Distant second to black. Red would only be acceptable if it were an exceptional guitar. Natural... never.

    Now the strange thing.... for a jazz box natural is the only way to go.
