Well it's supposed to be burgundy but it's really purpley (is that a word?). However, I am super impressed at how good a guitar this is. I bought it to take on a trip with me as a knock around guitar but I can't put it down. It has amazing ring and sustain, great fret work, a very comfy neck, heck even the pickups sound good. I also picked up a Line 6 Sonic Port VX and man am I having a blast with that thing but that's another thread. Check it out!
