    If anyone has a guitar--especially a Telecaster or Jazzcaster--painted this color, I'd love to see pics.
    Thanks!

    This is close to that blue, but not Duplicolor.

    Nice color, but maybe has a lot more metal flake than the Sonic Blue Pearl?

    turns out it is Dupli Color, but it's Metal Specks Premium Coating - Metal Specks Ocean Blue. MS400 on the label.

    The sparkle is more subtle in person. Had some lighting to make the sparkle show for that picture.

    In standard lighting t's a little more towards midnight blue than your Sonic Blue.

    Cool, can't wait. I'll probably have trouble sleeping tonight from the anticipation. :)

    That looks nice! Is that not the stock finish?

    I was never sure it was a Fender body.... all the hardware holes and pickguard holes lined up with stock parts... which was a blessing...

    The neck is a JV neck I got separately... it fitted nicely... whoever made the body did a good job....

    I was all ready to make a body, had it marked out and this body come up cheap on ebay... beauty, saved me making a body and thinking about which finish to choose...:lol:

    Looks more like Lake Placid than Sonic Blue.
    My son did a Duplicolor Flying V in that color a while back.

    Sorry for the delay but its been raining here as of late so no sunshine to take a proper picture. Today we have sun so most likely after work today.

    I'm fixing to paint a Peavey tele-type partially in exactly that color - sonic blue pearl, but I'm maybe a week away from that part of the project; just finished designing the paint job and sketching a mock-up. It's a repro of the state flag of Colorado, more or less. Blue, White Red and gold. the guitar is already red, so that will be masked off, then white, then gold, then the sonic blue pearl. I'll be putting up photos on a separate thread that will be useful in how NOT to do this kind of thing. Should be fun in any event.

    Yes! That's about exactly what I was hoping it would look like, a beautifully deep blue. Very well done, thanks for posting.
