    I got this Mex Strat and Peavey Vypyr VIP-l, both six months old for $325.00. Pretty good deal I think. Was looking for Lake Placid Blue, and I like this color but not sure it is LPB. Can someone please tell me what color it is. I thought Aqua Flake from the Fender color chart,,but flake doesn't look big enough. My eyes and computer screens suck. LOL, I shot outside in natural light, and didn't see the bug. All help appreciated.

    That’s how you know it’s a legit NC guitar. Mosquitoes come standard.
