whats the diff between solid and transparent colour??
solid colour: you cannot see the grain of the wood thru the colour coats. its like house hold paint ... 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. ..
u prefer solid or transparent
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,
ok thanx buddy !
