You'll probably see the same color in a few catalogs, sometimes under different names.
I'm sure you'll also think.... how come Fender didn't use this or that color too.... this could have been great... heh heh...
I'm planning to build a "What If" Fender line. This will include stuff like:
1954 Jazz Bass in blonde with a one piece maple neck
1951 Strat in butterscotch (AL3 pu's)
60's Custom Colors on 50's instruments
... and other imaginary "Could have been" instruments.
That might include other custom colors from the 50's and 60's that were not chosen by Fender at the time. There are many nice colors in those catalogs... huh?
Dakota red is DUCU which means Lacquer based Dupont paint. Those usually didn't get a clear coat... they looked nice and shiney without it and yellowed less with time (although in this case, Dakota red.. doesn't get yellowed at all)
That "phonetician yellow" Would look AWESOME on a maple fretboard strat, with an aged pickguard and CBS headstock!
Thank you for all of the information.
Funny thing is that most Olympic White CBS strats turn to something like "phonetician yellow" with time... no need to imagine... it's reality!
Sexiest strat ever, bar none.
Wow Gil, you have sure done all your homework
This is one of the best threads I've ever seen!
Good work Preeb, I'm now forced to all another page to my favorites.
Gil...Thanks for all your work and posting of all you do! I know the time it takes....but if you love doing something, time is "no time at all"! It certainly shows that you love it! I admire ALL your works!
i've painted so many cars I hope I never have to paint another one, thanks for the colors, they are all in my photoshop now
thanks... I went looking for this color the other night but couldn't find it - probably because it's from 65, not 63 as I was previously convinced.
I checked with Ditzler and there it was.
the crocus yellow looks great on a 65 vette convertible.
The sample seems a bit dark on my monitor though... I remember it as a pale canary yellow - almost as light as the yellow background here.
Thanks for sharing that.
The scans are not so good. Even in real life the colors always look either too dark or too bright when used on a larger area compared to the chips...
65 crocus yellow vette convertible sounds very good !
Gil, here is 1956 Buick Tahiti Coral.
take a look at www.provide.net/~cfh/ great article on fender custom colors
