    I don't mind a subtle trans burst that follows the body shape, but I can't stand the teardrop bursts. That Loar is beyond awful. Just paint it black and be done with it. The silver/black bursts are another look I can't get into.

    That OP is a tragic fail for sure

    Kill it! Kill it with cream pies, big floppy shoes, and balloon animals!

    Wow, some of those don’t seem to be bursts as much as two toned. I like a burst but it needs to be blended nicely for me. I do like teardrop and edge bursts both.

    This guy does a great burst by hand on this mandolin. If you don’t want to see the process just go to the last few seconds where he holds it up to the camera.

    At that point I'd just finish painting the top and call it orange.

    Just goes to show how opinions vary. I have a Martin CEO-4 that plays great and sounds fantastic.

    But I would describe the finish as butt-ugly.

    The Fender “Target Burst” is probably my favorite burst of all time and one of the most reviled I’m guessing. I wish I could find a painter that could do one like this.

    Agree this is hideous!

    That OP pic looks like a woman who let her beard grow out too thick in the summer. Which is to say, no bueno!
