    He doesn't, I asked Banjo Mike's and he didn't know you could get the black matte bobbins through the floor shop. He does have one with the black metal powder coated cover but I don't want to get into the debate if a cover changes the tone or not. I just want the sound of a good ol' JB with a slight different look but same classic aggressive lead tone.

    I also thought about the Thrash factor paired with a Sentient but they won't match, they don't look the same and the Thrash factor even though is a JB, it has a slightly different tone.

    I agree with the "Wait and send it back" crowd. Not like you have a gig anyway....And no Banjo etc. Won't have those in matte. Never seen them. Might get a JB/BW etc with black poles on neon or something.

    I also disagree with the paint/marker crowd on look like crap. Again - depending on how you play and where you set the pups, could be awesome/just fine.

    But don't do it - just wait and return.

    Can I safely back up the screws and slugs so I can tape the bobbins and just spray paint the tip of the poles (screw poles and slug poles)??? Just thinking how things are going, they may not re open for a while and they are going to be absolutely swamped just with regular production for guitar manufacturers.
