    solid colour: you cannot see the grain of the wood thru the colour coats. its like house hold paint :p ... generally used to hide bad quality timber

    transparent/ seethru colours: they give a slight tint to the colour of the wood but mantain the transparent laquer type quality, i mean, u can see the grain of the wood thru the colour. ...
    ummm lemme see if i can find good examples. ..

    i have all three types:
    solid: on my gibson classic, its black, solid, boring colour, but no complaints...its a gibson for god sake!
    transparent: another les paul, but not gibson, a custom built one, i have a sunburst on it (check http://www.indianguitartabs.com/showthread.php?t=6341 ) ...thats transparent.

    metallic: the third one is the baritone (searc the post your guitar pics thread ... i have a pic of that guitar there, its red metallic).

    but i prefer the transparent ones,
