Is it me or are some of the wine red studios from the 90s more opaque than others? I mean like really dark and not transparent....I seem to remember seeing this in the stores back in the 90s...but I was never really looking to buy then...I had my 74 Deluxe/Standard and my 82 Standard.....but being a paint and tech for quite some time now I just can't help but notice that there appears to be some real variance. I am comparing a 98 LP Studio to a 97 LPDC Studio....and it is really like two very different finishes one is transparent like a DK Cherry red (the DC) and the 98 is more like a Dk Maroon with blue undertones completely opaque....Does anyone have Gibsons actual process for the color in 98?

My 95 wine red Studio looked black in low lighting.
A 2007 and 2013 wine red were lighter, the 2007 being the lightest of them.
