    From that picture-angle, I’d say “meh” for a flametop, but definitely not a dud.

    The top wood is fine. I don’t like the lemon color...

    It's a decent top, the finish is a little bright, and where is the pick guard? Are they more aerodynamic without the pick guard? Never got that move.

    It'd look better with reflector knobs, but it's cool. I don't care for over the top tops. Plain tops and subtle flaming are my choice.

    Come on Squatch! This is TGP and you know we need to know what model it is before we approve or, not.

    I like it. Subtle, but hard to tell how the top might look from different angles and in the sunlight.

    I like it.
    But the real question is, how much does it weigh?

    Love it. I don't like the super flamey LPs. A more subtle or inconsistent flame looks perfect to me.
