Difference in Tobacco and 2-Tone Sunburst?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by freshmeat1989, Apr 28, 2005.

  1. I got to looking at xCental34x's 2TS Precision (beautiful) and looking at Warmoth and seeing they only have Tobacco and got to wondering. Is 2 Tone Sunburst the same as Tobacco Sunburst? If not, what is the difference?
  2. I'll take a whack at it.

    I believe that:

    1.) Two tone sunburst starts as a gold/light brown color in the center, and fades to dark brown at the edges.

    2.) Three tone sunburst starts as gold/light brown, then transitions to a reddish hue and then fades to dark brown at the edges.

    3.) Tobacco sunburst starts as a medium brown which then fades to dark brown at the edges.

    I could be wrong, but that's what I think.

    I've always thought that 3-tone goes from black to red to amber, 2-tone goes from black to amber, and tobacco goes from brown to amber.

    I think Tobacco has a darker shading.

    tobacco and 2-tone are usually pretty close, if tobacco is not a shade darker (as metal points out)... it varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, but the 2-tone/tobacco is generall light brown to dark brown. 3-tone is three coats of color= amber base coat, then red, then brown on the outside. all cool, but i like 2-tone/tobacco or whatever the all brown one is called.
