    It's amazing how much better pictures turn out when you turn off the flash. I was trying to get pictures of my Grosh Retro Classic that highlighted the weather checking of the paint. The natural beauty of the guitar certainly comes out much better when the flash is turned off.

    It usually takes a bunch of equipment, lighting, or a "light tent" to make flash photos of a guitar really turn out. Take your non-flash photos (apparently taken under incandescent lighting, based on the amber tones) into a decent photo tweaking program like Paint Shop Pro or (better yet) Photoshop and adjust the "color temperature" a bit cooler if you'd like to get that amber tone out.

    I always find the very best (non-action) guitar photos are taken outdoors. Try some non-flash photos outdoors on a slightly overcast day and you'll see what I'm talking about.

    Beautiful guitar, BTW - I love Don's guitars. I had a 2TSB Callaham for a while with playwear and checking such that it looked every bit of 30 years old. Great musical tool.
