Violectra's striking appearance comes from the high quality hand sprayed finishes of Jay Dee Custom Guitars, Birmingham, UK. You can choose from a dynamic range of over 20 colour finishes as a STAIN or SUNBURST finish, as well as Natural and Black Stain finishes.

STAINS are applied on the wood surface and intensify the grain patterns. Antique Gold can be used as a base stain in Cherry, Claret, Tobacco and Bottle Green finishes.

SUNBURSTS are applied with a gradiating airbrush effect combining two or more colours or to lighten to Natural/ Antique Gold Stain or to darken to Black.

CUSTOM COLOURS are available from either mixing existing colour finishes or choosing a pearlescent finish. Custom inlay, transfer or hand painted artwork undertaken; price upon enquiry.
