Post subject:  Modern Fireglo finish aging?

Wondering if anyone knows if the current fireglo finish tends to yellow as it ages.. I've had a Jetglo 330 on order for a few months now, but the ship date keeps getting pushed back, I'm guitar-less (thanks to a shady guitar repair guy) and I'm climbing the walls. Although it's not my first choice, I really *like* the current fireglo and it's and there's one avaliable at a local shop (that I'll be drooling over between shifts at work tomorrow); but, personally, I'd like it more if I knew the clear coat was gonna get more yellow (ok, GAUDY)and it would eventually affect the natural tone as well as the red.. kinda like a yellow to red sunburst glo. Sorry to seem such a prissy (you said bad word), but a thousand + bucks is alot to my broke ass for something that's not *exactly* what I want, even though I know the sweat, blood and skill put into ANY Ric is more than worth it.

Tia,

Tony
