Copper Tone Metallic

In 1954 Fender produced a prototype Tele in copper. Fender has since offered the color on special order '52 Reissuses. Copper Tone Metallic replicates that color. The color is blended in a high metallic acrylic lacquer and depending on the light source along with the viewing direction will appear to be light gold to copper to red copper. It should be applied over a prepped and white primed body. The color can be used with or without a clear coat. However, clearcoating with nitrocellulose slightly deepens the color and makes the color appear more "coppery". General consensus around here prefers the clear coat.
