    Never managed to get my hands on Lake Placid Blue, Daphne Blue or Mystic Blue. Or Pelham Blue! But below is Sonic Blue and faded Blue Ice Metallic.

    Not my favourite colour, but hate is a very strong word. I just think I prefer colours that are fundamentally closer to wood (even green, yellow etc). But that's just a theory. :)

    Yes 'hate' is a little stronger than necessary. Just been reading Bones on another thread talking about his Cerulean Blue Strat but no photo. Is that one of those darker ones?

    Love most blue guitars personally, LPB and Daphne for Teles, Ice Metallic Blue for Jags etc.

    Always wondered what one of those St Vincent guitars would be like to play. And I like mini buckers!

    To me shade is important. I do no like, usually, light blue, but I love transparent blue... and depends on the shape of the guitar as well....

    The minibuckers rock, anything from clean chime to P90-ish hair. And the guita itself is incredible. It's the same thick-ish neck as the Albert Lee, trem is rock solid, and the crazy pickup options are all useful.

    My blue Epi SG. I love the look but it doesn't get any use cos my Gibby is so much better. I do see more blue guitars in my future though.

    I don't hate any colour. Not keen on LPB.
    Here's my ASAT Special in Blueburst and Am Spec in Sonic Blue. WP_20160415_18_03_33_Pro.jpg WP_20161126_00_44_38_Pro.jpg
