They make it up as they go.

All of these "faded" bursts are attempts at copying a cherry sunburst done with the crap stain/dye that Gibson used in 58 and 59. It faded from red to dirty brown to lemon yellow fairly quickly upon exposure to UV and, well, life. They fixed the cherry stain in '60, but Les Paul geeks have been trying to crawl back in the womb ever since.

This is a "survivor" '59 (original burst) LP that I came very close to buying from Rumble Seat in Ithaca, NY a couple of years ago. Relatively close to original color. Best I've seen in the preservation class...
