  1. I'm strongly thinking about ordering a tobacco sunburst bass from Keisel. I just wanted to see some pictures.

    ha! I don't need to be asked twice to show off my bursts even tho none are true tobacco bursts but rather the more common std. 3 tones. imo tobacco tends to favor the old classic, a Strat with a maple board.
    Peavey cut corners on the Zodiac BXPs burst paint jobs so I got a hint of tobacco with the plate off.

    my Cort Curbow Retro is far closer to tobacco

    I like the classic Fender-ish 3 tone they gave the Squier VM PJs but don't recall tobacco on much of late

    then there's maybe the best burst ever sprayed, the T-40s which I waited years to find in my price range

    Thank you. I saw it offered on Reverb and the finish looked nice so I made an offer and got it. Looks just as good in person. Even though there's a thin band of red making it a 3 tone Sunburst G&L still calls it Tobacco Sunburst or they did when this one was produced. It's a 2009 if I recall.

    This is what G&L's original (1980) bursts looked like.

    Tobaccoburst Cavern, that I bought for it's sound.
    (before I bought the one above, I checked a more yellow - blackburst Cavern in another shop, it had some chips off the lacquer, something had gone wrong with applying the lacquer in the factory, the salesguy said. They also had a purple-ish burst violin bass with blade pickups.)

    And two sixties Italian hollwobody's with red- and sunburst.
