Damn it. That pisses me off. I was reallllly hoping the Red Sunset would be like the Frozen Sky, though I guess, to be fair, the guitar lives up to the Sunset name. Looks like raccoon / zebra stripes. Caparisons are by far the best guitar I've played, though once again playing factory made vs a handcraft is like a Civic vs a Ferrari. Ah well, I ordered one and I'm stickin' to it --e Are the colors brighter in real life? Looks a little low light in there. As for the "rays" of the sunset, are they a bright purple?
