Meet the acid trash stainless steel guard called Fallout.
It brilliantly survived a freaky nuke experiment in my lab, Just before it vaporized, I froze the transformation.
Now stabilized, after undergoing plasmatic de-ionization. It surprisingly still resembles a Strat guard, almost perfectly.
Smoothly finished detailing with rolled polished edging. A little less bling, more acid flash.
The color is not a coating, but is part of the stainless steel surface structure. A very durable guard for a busy Strat shredder.
Any single photo is unlikely to be 'the' photo to capture the overall character. The apparent color is effected by viewing angle, surrounding light, and reflects. Various degrees of subtle to dominant, depending on what you play and which way you're facing :)
