I've got my eye on this one on Reverb. All I need is about $598 more dollars!
Love Them All
I love them, I've had several over the years. This is currently the only one I have on hand, my second scratch build.
I chose "Whale Blue" when I bought my PRS. I had settled on sunburst, but at the last moment decided the blue was more subdued (I didn't want too flashy...the bird inlays were more than enough).
But lately I swear the color is shifting/fading to a purple. Anyone else seen this? Maybe it's my eyes, but I've checked under all sorts of light and it seems more purple.
Obviously I don't mind a blue guitar, but I did not want a purple guitar! (That said, I'll live with it.)
GUITARS 2013 PRS SE 24 - 01 by SecretSquirrel posted Apr 17, 2016 at 8:15 PM
My old start... signed by RL Burnside and Honeyboy Edwards
Looks more charcoal than purple in that photo. But very nice guitar. I have a 2010 version.
Recently got a used PRS SE Singlecut in Royal Blue. It has excellent build quality. But, I'm not so impressed with the sound. I kinda like my CV bsb better which this was supposed to replace with. I am actually considering to return this and just keeep my tele.
How could you not love blue guitars? My first build about seven years ago, the telecaster. Second build is the surfy Telemaster. Blue is my favorite color!
I guess I love them
Blues always sounds better on a blue guitar!
My first electric was a Daphne Blue Mustang in '65. Here's the two I have now, a Roadhouse with Texas Specials, and a Classic Player 60s with Custom Shop 69s.

Count me in....
My Gretsch G6120SHP, came from the factory as purple. But by the time I bough it, it had faded to blue.
The blue one has ov52 pick-ups.
Sometimes I like blue when I first see it but grow tired of it quickly. Blue jeans would be an exception. This goes way past guitars to cars boats etc.
Blue is the color I am planning for my next electric guitar. I will definitely want a transparent, not opaque, blue, with wood grains showing through.
More specifically, it will be a Logan Custom guitar, Bob Logan’s Challenger design, with his “Deep Blue” color, which is a transparent blue. I will want it to be a swamp ash body with pretty wood grains showing through. Fellow TDPRI member yakfishnick had Bob Logan make a S-style for him with a swamp ash body in this kind of finish. I hope Nick doesn’t mind me sharing a pic of his strat here to illustrate the color (though not the body style) that I’m talking about/GASing for…
That last pic, the guitar is beautiful.
The first thing I thought was it was a Suhr, love the colour.
I like most shades of blue, it’s probably not my favorite, but it’s right up there.
But that guitar looks world class, gorgeous all around.
I like them. Though I'm not a fan of the aged colors, with the yellowed clear coat. This lovely Ice Blue turns puke green, and the robin's egg blue (Daphne) turns into a bad surf green.
I agree about the faded colors. I'd rather see them as they looked new in the 60s. Fender makes Sonic blue, LPB, and BM way tooo light and yellow right out of the factory. Fender Japan doesn't do that, but instead offer them in the proper darker non yellowed versions.
