On that picture you provided, see how just before the yellow fades into the dark rown, it also gets slightly redder/orange for an inch or so? Epi and Gibson 'Vintage Burst' finishes don't really do that as much, they call that effect a tri-burst. On the Gibson/Epi version, it's a more subtle colour change, and not as big - only about half an inch and it's a barely noticable reddish tint.

But there could be variations. Not every finish will look exactly the same, especially when dealing with flame or quilt maple tops which are treated a bit differently. I think a good rule of thumb would be to say the Epi Elitist will look slightly more faded than that bright finish in the picture you linked to.
