Help with the vines on J customs

I just noticed that the vines that connect the leaves on my 8270 appear to be paint. I also noticed this on the 8670. However the vines on a 8470 are like the same material as the leaves. I never noticed this before.

They are not paint, its inlay. The 8470's just changed the material to MOP on the 8470's to make it blingier. The 8270's and 8670's are colored plastic

Re: Help with the vines on J customs

There are three variants of the J-Custom vine. The first has the colored plastic/mirror leaves in addition to the abalone and MOP leaves with a wood vine. The 2nd variant has no colord plastic/mirror inlays but instead has abalone/MOP leaves. The newest variant got rid of the wood inlayed vine and replaced it with MOP.
