Hey all, Long time reader, new member here! So I just purchased a strat off of guitar centers used inventory online (very good deal i thought). A 1993 American standard strat in ,Midnight Blue with a rosewood neck. I own a 93 American tele in midnight blue and so assumed it would be the identical color however side by side reveals the strat, two years newer, is definitely a darker shade of blue. So I guess my question is, can the same factory color appear differently on different guitars, time periods, or other factors or is it possible that either the strat or tele are not really midnight blue but another color? Just curious...I know its the sound and playability that are the most important factors...just wondering out loud, on the computer.
