Silly, I agree. I "thinkest" that tops aged to tan/light amber look better than when new. There's one exception (for me)...I've seen some Engelmann Spruce tops with a really nice light creamy white color that looks great in combination with a rosette, purfling and/or binding that "pops" against the white.

SM, my E20P is a 2019, just like yours. I'm always a bit surprised when I open the case and see how pale it is.

I've got a Holter pickguard being made for it, should be here any day. Once that is on, maybe I'll try leaving it out for a few hours a day, let it get some sun.

I'm more used to the vintage toner that Martin uses on their Vintage Series tops. I like that.

I like watching the tops age over time.
