Hello, I am hunting down an RS-4 (if anyone can help lmk!) and am wondering what finishes are out there.  The website lists fewer than I've seen, and a vintage cherry burst that I've never seen on a guitar.  I even found out about a white one here (would love pics!).

What finishes are found on these instruments?

Thanks,
Phil

The Rootbeer is nice for sure. IMO the RS 4 is the nicest all around solid electric guitar on the market today. Now I have not played them all but I have played a good many  ohmy

I hope I will like the RS4.  I've listened to a bunch of clips - I like the tone.  I have no access to one firsthand to try, however.  I like LPs except for the scale since I grew up on strats and ibanezes.  Gotta have me my 25.5 scale.  I was looking at the Monaco SuperPro as another option but this is a semi-hollow and TBH, the RS4 just looks stellar in comparison.

People's reports have all been the same tho and very positive, so that's reassuring.

Agreed, that blue one (and the white one above with black binding) really shows off the nice lines and curves that make the RS-4 unique.  nice guitar

Hi Rev,

Glad you like my white one - the only thing prettier is the sound that comes out of it!

However, the binding only looks black in the photo. It's actually a tortoise shell like material (not exactly sure what it is):
