GAN249 v2 M Stickerless with black internals

Hi guys just want to share my GAN249 v2 M stickerless since I haven't seen someone else do it. It has black internals to match GAN's current 3x3 and 4x4 lineup.

Since switching to stickerless puzzles from black stickered, I have been very particular with the shades of the puzzles and have found that the GAN's shades are my favorites specially with the black internals complementing them. The aesthetics of the 460 and 356 X are perfect but the ones with the 249 v2 aren't exactly the same. It has matte finish and a primary internals, so I switch it the the internals of a black stickered one. (The 249v1 already has black internals but the shades are different, a lot darker and I didn't actually liked it as a speedcube so this was the fix that I've thought of). The result didn't fix the matte issue on the surface and there are black lines very visible outlining each piece but nonetheless now matched the aesthetics of the 4x4 and 3x3.

Also, are there any other stickerless puzzles wherein the internals are black, or at least wherein something like this is possible (aside from the Shengshou Tank series)?

Shengshou aurora, I believe, has the same black internals feature. Still shengshou, but the puzzle is very smooth.

Have you considered selling these? I had thought about doing this before, but I never put in the effort. Thank you for putting this idea into action
Glad to know I'm not the only one who would want to try this. I'm very happy with how it turned out but I have no plans of selling one.
