Thanks, it's ash. I bought it new from Rose Morris in Denmark Street, London!
Love 'em. I love sonic blue, daphne, maui, LPB...delicious.
I don't have a blue guitar currently, but my bass (Musicman Stingray knockoff) is a nice trans blue. I usually don't care for trans finishes, but it look nice on this bass...it's fairly light blue, with a touch o' green...almost teal.
Sorry...don't have a pic of it.
Come to think of it, my last bass (heavily modified mid-90s Squier P bass) was also blue--"Baltic Blue" was what Fender called it.
Dear Lordy, that is all kinds of beautiful!
That’s a very special piece.

I love blue.
Current blue guitars. My favorite Blue is Daphne Blue. Love the Sonic Blue with a rosewood fretboard and Daphne with a maple fretboard. Clapton's Daphne blue is my favorite with the whiter maple neck. Looks so clean and classic. The Sonic is on the right. Sorry for the bad pic here.
Daphne Blue amp and the left is a custom shop with Daphne Blue. At least Fender says it's Daphne Blue but it has more green in it that I initially cared for, but it's a unique tint and it plays so good I can never let it go. My other one that did get away was a Tele in Mystic Blue I love that color. Though I'm currently looking for examples of the Clapton Mercedes Blue and Midnight Blue. They both look amazing. Yep, love blue. Runner-up colors are the current Buttercream, 2-tone sunburst and white blonde.
Oh yeah ... trans blue was my first "color obsession" and still probably my favorite.
The first partscaster I ever built. Mexican made body of unknown origin ... paulownia wood (super light weight) with a custom handmade strat neck from a guy who worked out of a guitar shop in Melbourne Australia. Really nice neck. Kent Armstrong Lippy at the neck, a genuine '62 Strat pickup in the middle, and a Super 70 (Japanese Maxon) PAF clone at the neck ... the same type EVH had in his 1975 Ibanez Explorer. The trem bridge and saddles plus the tuning keys came off a Hondo and the tuners were actually made by Grover. The neck plate still bears the Hondo rising sun logo. Graphite string trees from who can remember where. 7-way switching by 3 x mini toggle ON/OFF switches.
Then we have a recent build, made from modding an Indonesian (Cort) made 2018 FSR Vintage Modified 70's Squier strat in a deeper trans-blue. It has a Mojotone Knockout SC at the bridge (hot wind) with a Mojotone Twoface SC (hot wind) in the middle and a Mojotone Hot-Quiet P90 at the bridge. Master volume and master tone with the bottom knob a blender no-load pot fading in the bridge or neck depending on where the 5-way blade switch is positioned. So blendable 7-way switching rather than ON/OFF. CTS 330k pots. "Synthetic bone" nut whatever the hell that really means.
Yeah. I like blue guitars.
Does this answer the question?
MIM Tele, Lake Placid Blue.
1990 Ibanez RG 570 in Jewel Blue
Not sure if an “outer” blue burst counts: 2014 PRS Custom 24 MSL in Blue Charcoal Burst
Love the PRS custom 24, she sure is a looker!
Thank you, kind Sir! I was lucky to get this guitar. She plays better than she looks.
Yes, the trans blue is amazing.
These are my girls: Chrome Blue MIA, LPB MIM and Aquamarine Metallic MIA, with a Paf Pro in the bridge
I have a few blue ones, this is my new blue one ... a Custom Shop '61 Relic Ready (not reliced but very thin skin) with 10in fret radius and John Cruz hand-wound pickups. Super Badddddd. I added the Bladerunner with graph-tech saddles and a graph-tech nut ... stays in tune pretty well now!
My latest Blue guitar, a inexpensive t-type, just finished setting it up.
I must be one of the last here to get the blues...
Not last @Tone Deaf . I think I have a couple in midnight blue.
The pawn shop rescue that brought me to S-T...
A 1994 MIA is about all the collective minds could agree on because the neck had been replaced.
And my first Fender strat, the blue one on the right...
Just rediscovered this thread. I'd ordered a candy turquoise body but changed that to blue ice metallic, and that build was completed recently. I'm loving this guitar! Satin finish, DiMarzio pups, scalloped ebony fretboard, Gotoh trem--to my current preferences this is sheer perfection!
