Black vs Metallic Black

Comparison of the Jackson / Charvel black colors

What is the difference between the Jackson Guitars production model finish "Black" and "Metallic Black?" I have seen this question asked quite a few times on forums in the past and answered quite a few of them, only to have thrown away my pictures by the time the next guy ask the same question. So for future use, here's a quick comparison using my own photos of my black guitars.
