As I have mentioned in a couple of posts I have a new Vela that arrived yesterday. It’s a “Custom Color “ Metallic Royal Blue" as The Guitar Sanctuary states. I have been going back to the ad as it did not have a picture, and finally caved. The black scratch plate does not look bad but I think it’s going to go away in favor of a white pearl!!! Thank you Brian at guitar sanctuary. I set it up last night and now just waiting for it to settle in. It sounds every bit of what I expected out of a Vela.. what a looker it is! Happy birthday to me!!This should nicely round out my Vela collection. https://imgur.com/a/73cLLPd The Blue is much darker than what is offered normally..
