    has anyone here seen or own a Streamliner with a flamed top? I’ve come across one recently and am considering buying it. If you’ve got one, please post pics!

    Can't say I've ever heard of a flame-top Streamliner. What are the specs on the one you're looking at? (Year, model number, etc.) If you're concerned about authenticity, post some pics and we'll take a look at it.

    I’m interested to see it as well. I googled flame top streamliner and it showed me pictures of a 6120 players edition.

    came up with the same results in my google search. I’m sure it’s legit, couldn’t imagine someone going to the trouble to fake a streamliner. BEC83E0B-919D-4721-8202-E461F44D501F.jpeg

    Flame-top Streamliner (circa 1955).

    I might call that one "Quilted".

    Don't think they've done a flame on a Starliner. Cheaper wood.

    For sure there are some special tops on Streamliners, same for birdseye or flamed necks on some Squiers. Rare exceptions to the rule.
