    I hope that's a good combo, because that's what I just ordered from Mark!

    While we are on the subject, I just ordered a blonde guitar from Mark, and am on the fence as to natural or tinted.

    Does anyone who has ordered from him feel strongly about which is the better finish? Mark says that the natural finish ages to yellow pretty quickly anyway.

    Also, some tinted finishes look too yellow to me, kind of unnatural. Or maybe it's possible to add just a bit of tint to get you started.

    First world problem, I know!

    I'm jealous of those of you who are ordering guitars now - I'm on the queue about 24 months forward!

    I'd go with natural, no tint, and let the natural aging of the lacquer reveal that beauty over time.

    Hi bluejaybill
    Not a Campy owner sadly, but my natural L5 took about ten years to go honey. Once it did it really was awesome. Dont know about you but if it were today I probably dont have the ten to wait lol!

    The new CAMPELLONE V1K model begins-0214e726-66ae-4789-b379-efc7f2ab61f2-jpgI just feel like natural is a bit too bright. I prefer the antique natural that Mark C applies. To my eyes it has a bit more depth and a bit more warmth.

    My old 000 is almost that color.

    I definitely admire the inlay and wood art on fancier archtops. But I remem er a conversation with Mark Campellone way back where he told me. His Std e try level guitars played and sounded the same as his fanciest models.

    So while I can appreciate a Beautiful Blonde,LOL ! As a player I would consider the tone and playability first and foremost. And after playing a Campellone Deluxe owned by freind , they are GREAT!

    Mark offers a pile of colours as part of his standard range. Here's another one - this is his "amberburst":

    Hammer, the amber burst and Maccasar (or Rosewood) is a beautiful combo.
    Thanks for posting those pictures.
