Well, people here are really polite to not have chimed with strong opinions that it's super ugly!
Thanks for sparing my feelings :-)
There is just something about this finish that has grown on me over the years. I had a copy Strat that had a finish much like the bottom pic... which I initially thought was horrid. I think that was the gateway. The guitar unfortunately got "borrowed" and never came back.
I particularly like the style with the off white to greenish burst, as opposed to the bright white to grey/black style. The two top pics are Fanos, maybe the Jazzmaster style one too (not sure).
