    So... same guitar but photos depict its color quite differently? Still looks great to me.

    Is it lighting or actually different. Fairly big change but both still look real good.

    just looks like difference between light source...

    I've seen Rondo pictures and AGF pictures show the same type of finishes with similar disparity.

    hit it with some yellow incandescent light and a nice DSL camera, I'm sure the amber would pop more.

    It's the same guitar just diff light sources, taken outside or inside can be a totally diff color. Many sellers use the light trick to make it look better or lighter than it really is. Take it outside in sunlight and take a pic I'm sure it will come out much more yellow in middle than inside pics.
    It looks nice no matter the color, I have had a few wtf moments when getting guitars compared to stock pics, probably 40% of them aren't as pretty in person as pics showed they were.

    I like the darker look better. YMMV but I dig it. Good body style too. Congrats.

    I thought you meant the bedspread. Guitars are the same.

    guitars are the same but the finish is different.. played it last night and need to tweak a few things.. Ive waited some time to get a finish like the top picture

    Guitar is beautiful but........ he has offered me a partial refund

    Some have said its the same and different lighting.. took it outside, etc and finish in any light is not the same.. We will see

    thanks for letting me vent

    If it's not the same guitar, they would have to both be photo tops. Their grain patterns match.

    Yeah that’s a bummer man. That ice tea burst in the first two photos is really sweet.
    Still best looking tempest I’ve seen.

    I agree with this. The grain pattern is a perfect match between the two guitars. Even the slight dot between the knobs and tailpiece.
