    Well we've got Red, Blue, Green & Black, but I haven't seen a burst owner's club yet. I am aware that this may be light on Gretsch content, but may I start by showing my Squier PJ Bass, which I love:

    ...but am thinking of upgrading to a Fender Thinline Deluxe. We shall see.
    Upgrades include a Fender 4-way switch, Schaller locking tuners, and a G&L stamped neck plate.
    I may update the pots soon as the volume knob is a bit scratchy. Probably go with CTS pots following Fender’s Greasebucket layout.

    Although I am the co-founder of the "I'm Seeing Red Club", I have owned more sunbursts than any other color. Currently, this is my only burst and my new favorite axe. I had to put on a red strap though:cool:

    If Red Bursts are allowed, then I can display another one - my 2005 modded Squier Std :

    I've had a boatload of sunburst guitars. When you like Gibson acoustics as I do, that comes with the territory. Unfortunately, only the J-200 remains.......

    Partscaster. Most dependable guitar I own. Never fails me. Playing live in extreme heat and sunlight....rock solid!

    And to prove I don't have anything against Sunburst, these are the ones that got away:

    5120 - one of my greatest regrets, because I loved the way it felt in my hands.
