New refinished PRS Custom 24 AP, Black Green Arkham

Hello Guys, just wanted to share with you my C24, i finished applying the new color, i got tired of the TransBlack it originally came with.

I'm calling this Dark Green to Yellow-Green fade the "Black Green Arkham".

Hope you like it, she will be coated with Lacquer.

Nico.

It was a TransBlack finish. Here she is curing right after the color was applied.

To those who either can't speak Spanish or deduce which was which, the one on the left is "After" and the one on the right is "Before."

UPDATE: Just finished doing the back and sides and the "Brazilian Rosewood neck", of course it is not rosewood, but i managed to mix just the right amount of tints to reproduce that same look!!! love it.

The natural wood color of the back and sides shows like its uneven, but once the clear coat is sprayed it will look even!.
