Is only the JDM model sunburst? I have not heard that or seen any pics or videos of the matte blue. I guess all the online reviewers have JDM models?I would go for the 57. I think you could have a lot of fun with straps using the gold accents. Khaki NATO with PVD hardware, black woven single pass with a khaki stripe, brown tropic. If I was set on blue, I would try to get the sunburst JDM model because I am not a huge fan of the matte blue. The blue is more playful. I don't think you can go wrong here.
