Re: Custom Jem Blitz!
A color decision was made... just one solid color (a dark espresso or French roast), metallic flake. However, under the pickguard (solid mirror-like with laser cutouts of vines and leaves) will be a bronze metallic paint.
This decision was based on the pickguard covering much of the body, and so adding a burst or a texture did not make sense. And there is much going on with the pickguard, silver hardware, engraved pickup covers, etc. The luthier not only agreed (also suggested it), but so too did the painter... an award-winning custom car painting company... a paint finish not to be seen too often on a guitar.
