I do think sunrise sunbursts will fetch a premium though.

I think you're right
I have a personal preference for the darker 'tobacco/vintage cremona/antique violin' sunbursts but am aware I am in the minority

and I was kidding - gonna be playing her this weekend

What? That's more than some 390's or 350's go for! Bizarre. They are nice though and beautiful.

I like a brown sunburst although I think there is no mention of it in the catalogues. Someone here but can't remember who, inherited one from his father. I would have loved some pictures of it taken outside in broad daylight. Think it looked absolutely gorgeous.

I also prefer the darker ones. The sunrise burst makes I look too 'Gibsony'. Still, I wouldnt kick it out of bed.

the only problem with the daylight is that I pretty much haven't seen a bright day in the last year!

No not what I mean. That is known as ABS Antique Brown Sunburst if you look at the Prestige 150 beside it in the catalogue there it was available in BS Brown Sunburst while it isn't mentioned as an option for the 250. I like the 250 in BS Brown Sunburst maybe more and think they exist, though only few!
I was referring to xbarnesx's here (but I know of at least one other): http://forum.westoneguitars.net/t3206-my-prestige-250-finally
I also noticed it has the 'script' style logo and there is no mention of a BS finish for even the 150 in the 82/83 catalogue ! The Antique Brown finish sure does look really very nice too I'll have to admit! The one in Mike's, gittarasaurus pic has an awfully gorgeous nice flamed top but it's not his I can tell for he makes much nicer photographs, often in broad daylight!

The weather is about the same here Arthur and that chilly northeast wind is getting very anoying! Even migrating birds were so shocked when they arrived they flew back to Africa. No birdsongs Crying or Very sad

affraid I know how you feel. Once I checked the current value of my '64 Gibson which I happily used to gig with, I mostly leave it in her case now.

Daft I know, but even at home I reach for any one of the other (cheaper) 28 guitars before I take her out. Really buggers up your approach to the guitar.

Shameful as that is Damian I can assure you it is not the worse feeling one could muster when a perfect guitar has an accident. At least that misfortune was visited upon one of your guitars and not your wife's.

They are built like tanks though. Back in the dim and distant past I dropped a p250 (tobacco burst) off a 4 ft high stage. If I remember rightly this resulted in a very small ding on the headstock.
I sold that guitar in Glasgow around 1990in a no longer existing guitar shop. Don't suppose anyone knows its whereabouts now. Much as I love the one I've got, the tobacco burst is nicer looking than the Cremona.

But not the time, as we're 'tarting' up the house and moving on.

Can't live in this shiite area called London any more, turning into a slum around here.
