    It’s a 1990 Sebring (company defunct as of 1994) Les Paul Special, that I got for $100. I gutted it, put in a Gibson wax-potted Burstbucker type 2 (simply divine), got the top repainted by a local car repair shop (color is Tropical Turquoise - 57 Chevy), popped in a set of Hipshot locking tuners, replaced the bridge with an Epiphone LockTone bridge, replaced the nut with a white Graph Tech Tusq XL one and got a custom pickguard made from a manipulated Gibson Sonex template.

    I also had my best local luthier give it a setup.

    I put a lot of money into this cheapie, but my goodness does it ever play, feel and sound incredible. In this particular instance, it was money well spent!

    Don't have a blue guitar at the moment but I like 'em a lot. Inspired by a fellow Strat-Talker, I've got a candy turquoise body on order from Warmoth for my next build. My 2nd build had a caribbean blue burst body:

    I bought it off a forum member at ReRanch I think it was. I had it for 5-6 years then sold it on to make some room.
    It is a 2004 Squier '51, it was originally a sunburst that got some damage, was traded and then it was refinished in Ocean Turquoise. An Ian Rich control plate and a filtertron type pickup were added. I believe the neck was done with Tung oil.
    It was a good looking guitar and a nice player, but I just never bonded with so to speak.

    It’s so....blue!:D

    Oh, I dunno, the shape fits nicely, the P-90s growl, it even sounds ok unplugged...
    Very different from my Fenders.
    And it’s beautiful!

    I was wondering if that was painted or not... looks quite authentic in that pic
