    I've stalked that faded Aqua violet SC a few times now...

    This also explains why I don't have as many blue guitars in my collection as I should!

    Another of those 'slightly faded' Royal Blue guitars they used to make... If the picture works I'll post some other - it's my first picture post so who knows what'll happen

    Finally this thread is getting good. That's the best looking blue guitar I've ever seen. I'll even go so far as to give it a Bangin'!

    The top was once a brighter blue than the case lining based on the stain inside the control cavity. The back was a solid dark blue, now faded to a dark mahogany.

    Last one - you can just see some blue almost like a a shadow in the finish, mostly around the rear of the trem where the UV didn't get it and a bit at the back towards the rear strap pin. There's some hints of blue around the control knobs too where the knobs must have partially shaded small patches of the finish from the UV.

    That beast looks stunning! There's a hot one on Reverb that looks like this. I'd hop all over it if it wasn't in Europe. That whole wood import thing.

    No, it's Royal Blue. The bridge pickup surround has a bit more blue under it than the neck surround but overall the whole guitar looks like it's mucky Vintage Yellow with a dark back. It's a very early production guitar and most of the early stains were prone to fade to some extent, blue probably the most.

    For some reason I can't see any of the photos. I really want to see the guitar.

    Is Blue Green more blue or more green? My eyes are so broken from staring, I can't tell anymore.
