Hi Mr Hall,I read a post you had written in another forum back in 2000 in answer to a question about the Autumnglo finish:

"The earliest version of Autumnglo was simply shaded brown. The middle
clear areas on most of these old guitars have yellowed, but wasn't
originally apparent. The next version was just Fireglo laid on rather
heavily. The last version was back to that original brown, but in a
satin finish, while the gloss version of that color was designated
Walnut.

So when someone says Autumnglo, you always have to ask "WHICH
Autumnglo"?"

[John Hall, jhall@rickenbacker.com, 2/17/2000]

Yesterday I bought a 1984 620 which the owner insists is Autumnglo.It looks like a Fireglo but it is darker.Could this be the second version of Autumnglo or is it just an aged Fireglo.I posted photos of it on Peters Forum in the Rickenbacker Guitars section of the Forum in the post "I got a 620".If anyone besides Mr Hall has any info on the second version of Autumnglo please let me know

That version of Autumnglo, in fact all versions of Autumnglo were long gone by 1984. It can only be a dark Fireglo, perhaps one that's seen some significant sun. Look at the binding- is it yellowed? A yello filter over shaded red makes for a nice brown shading.
