That actually looks very green I'm glad to say. Any shots of the front or is it a different top wood?

Here's the front. The real color is somewhere between what the two pictures show. The lighting at the store was a combination of natural light and fluorescent with some smaller spotlights.

I'm hit and miss, they all look good, but some are just incredible. I think it looks best when the grain is more pronounced. Those blues really caught my eye, and that CT3 with just the BlackBurst was my favorite!
