I've seen very different takes on these finishes depending on the brand of the instrument. But, if I were to order a Sadowsky  Lips sealed with one of these finishes, what would be the differences? Which one of the following photos is more true to real life?:

I think that I like Frost Gold better, like this one:


but then I see this one that is also Frost Gold and it's not my cup of tea:


Then I see this one finished in Shoreline Gold that I also like:


...and this one on SG that I don't like as much:



I'd like to hear from players that own Sadowsky instruments with any of these finishes...also Roger, Kevin or Rob's opinions are welcome  Wink

I definitely prefer #4569! It shows a great warmth!

It's a little too much for me. #4372 is more my thing, but I'm not sure why they are so different.

#4529 is an attempt to replicate an "original Fender Shoreline Gold" from around 1960.  It has always amazed me how they do not look "gold" at all.  5170 was a "Frost Gold" which was another original Fender color.   There is so much inconsistency with these gold colors, that we are now only offering our "Sadowsky Shoreline Gold" which is a little bit Frost Gold and a little bit Les Paul Gold.  This is the most recent one we have done and is representative of what our Shoreline Gold will look like from now on:

This is my favourite,of the 4. I find it less brash & more in line with what I would associate w/ an "exclusive" instrument. Strictly personal taste of course.
