    Never understood why so many seemed to shy away from midnight blue. Although some people wouldn't choose a black or white Strat. :whistling:

    All I know is that back in the day Leo went to the local auto paint shop and bought what they had and were using, so if two different venders then maybe slightly different mix?

    If your Tele and Strat bodies are different woods, that could explain the difference.

    Midnight Blue is one of the most underappreciated Fender colors. I have a 2000 MB MIM strat and depending on the light, it can be black, blue, purple or somewhere in between. It's not my favorite color (that's LPB) but it's right up there.
