Cashew lacquer is light brown. See example above. Maybe it's pistachio lacquer.

cashew lacquer is amber originally, so it giver the white tokai logo a golden colour, it is perfectly feasible to have cashew lacquer on a cherry sunburst guitar...

DNs guitar is a 1981 LS-200 so it is cashew Lacquer

this is also cashew lacquer..




as is this...

Villager, you are right about cathew lacquer and how it changes over time. All the binding part fades to orangy yellow as well. Your guitars are beautiful too!

Weird burst on it...no real gradient or feathering on the cherry...goes right from cherry to amber via almost an instant change.
