If it's painted don't get it.

Like dark mahogany... like most painted LP necks.

Moisture on the paint will make it sticky. If you play rhythm or easy rock riffs then that's no big deal.

It's not black. Every picture I've seen, the honey burst is a slightly transparent dark brown on the back. All the other Epi Standards have finishes like that too on the back, so it makes sense the honey bursts back is like it's front burst colour.

Could be wrong though. Honey burst is the one Epi finish I've not yet seen in person, and in pictures sometimes it looks black and in other pictures it looks almost exactly the same as a Cherry burst finish.

For what it's worth though, whether it's black, brown, bright pink or whatever, it shouldn't make a difference in terms of playing, it will be a purely aesthetic change. All the Epi guitars are made with the same plastic-based poly finish so it will feel the same regardless of colour. Also as for the 'stickiness', I've never found that's a problem with the Epi necks. I think it's because the poly finish reacts to heat differently to a traditional nitro finish.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.
