The Fireglo shading on the C63s looks darker than the previous versions - would you say that's true "in the flesh" or is it a trick of the light?

It is quite red/dark - although maybe its an illusion as they are set against the Ruby. Let me take another peek.....back in a mo

.....nope - they are deffo darker :-)


Many thanks for checking that out and confirming Tim!

It's interesting that this FG is a different shading to the earlier versions. As the sales blurb for the C63 indicates that "the 360/12C63 is true to the 1963 version in every aspect— down to the shading on the Fireglo finish" would be nice to know which of the shadings they've used so far is actually the closest to Harrison's original...or maybe they are all an accurate match depending on how faded the guitar was at any given point over the past 5 decades... :wink:
