Preston Thompson Guitar luthiers Jason Hardesty and Simon Haycraft have been hard at work creating some amazing sunburst finishes here at Thompson. Their skill has been honed over years of working with nitrocellulose lacquer and hundreds of guitars, and they have learned just how much lacquer is needed to create the thin, high-quality finishes that Thompson is know for. thompson-guitars-brazilian-rosewood-0000-7.jpg
Here at ThomThompson.12-fret-00-acoustic-guitar-20-705x1180.jpgpson our sunbursts come in a variety of colors and styles such as teardrops, full body and neck bursts, soft fades or heavy bands, or semi-distressed vintage. We create bursts in tones of amber, shades of red, or smoky brown. We can customize the colors, making each one unique and each one a piece of art.
