I have seen a bunch of those around sold as photo-flames, so likely that would be another example.

Yes,my opinion too.OBGs with solid flametops are so rare that it would be really funny to find a simple Orville with such a solid killer top.

Do you mean laminate? Photo flame is different from laminate. If the top changes when you look at it from different angles then it's not a photo flame.

+1..... easiest way to identify a fotoflame. Real wood has reflective properties. From one angle, portions of the flame will look light and dark. If you tip the guitar to another angle, the light becomes dark and vice versa. Fotos stay the same from all viewing angles
