    Hey eveybody.
    I have the opportunity to buy a streamy in this color für dann cheap.
    I know its some Kind of Red..
    But does it shows the grain of the Wood or is it a plain closed color?
    I find all the pictures in the net Just Show a really shiny strong a Bit annoying Red....
    Could someone maybe Post a closeup shot?
    Thx Guys!

    Flagstaff Sunset red is slightly different from the well known Firebird Red ... just do a google image search ;)

    PS: On Streamliners it seems to be semi-transparent:

    It actually looks better in real life than the photo.
    The Streamliners look very sharp in this colour.
    I have a G2655 in Flagstaff sunset.

    To me it looks like a transparent version of Firebird Red:

    That has crossed my mind as well. Depending on the angle it's practically the same thing.

    Those are great, especially considering the price. I was amazed how light they are for a center block. I wouldn't say they sound especially "Gretschy" but still good anyway.

    Congrats on a beautiful new guitar.

    (I'd like to get a job naming colors. My wife and I are building a new house so we had to pick a primary wall color. There were five shades of gray offered - Colonnade, Amazing, Dorian and two others. How they came up with those names is a mystery. My favorite name is Dorian Gray, if it's true to the novel, the walls will get really ugly while we stay pretty. :D)

    I really appreciate that you kept yours , Rich.
    Imho this special guitar is the utmost R´nR Machine ever built. Love mine to death. Everything on this one is very special including the colour. I really never experienced girls to compliment on the colour of one of my guitars except on that special one. It is "porn de la porn":cool:. And the power-tron rocks harder than any PAF.

    This beautiful flagstaff sunset panther is becoming a rarity (compared to the white and black ones).
