one-owner korean strat, help with color?

Hello! I purchased this guitar brand new in 1993. I remember picking it out because the color wasn't the usual. However, in recent years, I've become completely stumped, as I've not ever seen another strat in this color. It's definitely not a repaint... every last piece on the guitar is stock except for the strings. The closest Fender color I can compare it to is Maui Blue. Serial on headstock is CN310448. Has anyone else ever seen a squier strat like this?

While differences in lighting may have affected how it looks in one picture compared to the other, to me it looks most like Lucerne Aqua Firemist:

I checked out your suggestion, and it's too dark and has a hint of green (mine is blue through and through; what I would call a very deep baby blue). I definitely appreciate the info; I looked through all fender's blue colors and none are even close; all too light or too dark. The pictures I've attached are pretty true to actual color. I'm wondering if the color is non-standard since it is a Korean-made Squier?

Wish they would simplify things a little by just calling colors what they actually are...like turquoise for this one...

I found a Fender Japan color chart from the 80's and they show a blue very similar to yours and it is labeled "CBL" and then some Japanese lettering that I can't read.

The chart is a .pdf file so I can't load up here.

That Maui blue does look like a winner though.

By the by, great looking guitar!!!

I've been trying to figure out this color too!

I too bought one of these Korean Strats in '93 - same color, except with a rosewood fretboard. I wish I still had it. The best I can come up with is either Taos Turquoise or Maui Blue.

I had one in the same color. couldn't do much to improve it, tried new pickups but didn't sound any better, so I sold it on ebay.I just called it baby blue.
