Does anybody have first-hand experience with the Vermont Maple custom vinyl?

Tom, if you get a 160, I will, too.

I have Vermont Maple. It looks a lot like Boston Cherry, but a little less dark and a little less red.

I think Boston Cherry is a pole dancer in Bob's neck of the woods...

Yeah, Mark, but not very seriously. Too many other things coming up, but the VP160 and VP180 do make my VP100 seem kind of quaint.

The web page depicts Vermont Maple vinyl as basically "dark brown", which is kind of what I'm looking for. We have a couple of dark oak pieces we like.

I guess the question - for those of you that have it - is, how does your perception of the actual finish compare with the depiction on the website?

Thanks. Appreciated.

I currently have a sample of it. As I said, I actually like it a little more than the real wood walnut with caramel stain. However, I don't think I like it enough over the Boston Cherry to pay the slight premium, not when weighing in the fact that I have all four EP800s in Boston Cherry, which I won't be replacing anytime soon.

It's completely different from the website picture. It's a dark reddish brown. I'd suggest getting a sample before you buy.
