So I've owned a few Gibsons, some with solid colors, translucent, bursts, and some faded ones. I have no experience as a painter, so here's my question. Why do all of the solid color finishes like ebony, classic white etc. all have the finish sprayed on so thick you can never read an entire serial number? Personally I don't see why it would be necessary, but like I said I'm not in that world. Just curious about it is all. Thanks.
