    Is that a Dean, or a Hamer (or something else entirely?) Whatever it is, it's gorgeous.

    I had this, everything I needed to assemble (other than time to do it, or $ to pay to have it done) I wish I had finished it.
    I had this for a while waaaaaay back in the 90's.
    A "Blue Suede" Dano. I'd play it while wearing the hospital scrubs that were nearly identical color, kinda funny. The stickers were only on for a couple shows.
    A partscaster I made, I ended up parting it back out to finish another guitar. I think this is my favorite Strat color combo, though.
    An 81 Matsumoku Skylark, the guitar I always wanted since I was a kid. I just don't have any good pics of it.

    My first partcaster was a sonic blue strat. I really love it.

    A couple of other "Blue" guitars I own, and yes I do like 'Blue' and 'Blues'.

    A 1999 G&L ASAT Custom Special, in 'Emerald' Blue and a not often seen 2011 Gibson Limited Edition EB11 Les Paul Junior Bass guitar in Pelham Blue

    About 15 years ago when I could afford a "real" Stratocaster again, I went looking for an Olympic White/maple board one like I had back in the day. Until I walked into the music store and saw a daphne blue Strat with maple board and MOP pickguard and it was like a light shown down upon it from heaven! A gorgeous piece I knew I just had to have. I've since sold it, but it was a beauty!
    I've been round and round with the color of my AmStd Tele, from the original black, to sunburst, never completely happy with it. I finally had it repainted in Ice Blue Metallic, and now it's "the one"!

    I guess I like blue, eh..

    I love most blues! I don't however like navy blue. I wear a lot of black, so navy blue doesn't look too good on me. If it's lighter I can totally get behind it!

    Gonna have to say no to blue. It just doesn't do anything for me.

    All my guitars are red-ish. But that's been due to opportunistic buying habits (bargains) coinciding with guitars that make the grade.

    I've never stumbled across a blue guitar in my journey but would love to have one or more...

    In fact ... I have only 2 pins on Pinterest

    1) Blue Stratocaster
    2) Blue PRS

    I am always searching for circa 1997 Strats in Midnight Blue to match my '97 Candy Apple Red. When I bought the C.A.R in 97, there was a Midnight Blue right next to it, but it had a maple fingerboard, and I wanted rosewood.

    Not found one yet.

    Starting to think that blue bass guitars are much rarer than blue six strings!

    Those are like G&L LPB, Fender LPB is little more blue than these, or it is called for something else. My fave of blues.
    I can see this difference in my G&L Lecagy and Fender Precision Bass.
    Sonic Blue is pretty too.
