    Yup.

    Top-heavy fractions for the thinking musician!

    Here is my hand painted Strat. It is a mid eighties Japanese Squier that started off as red. It is a tribute to my grandparents. My Granda was ex navy and the portrait is of him in his uniform. The other pictures on the back represent his naval tattoos that he had.

    Since I couldn't find a pic I took one! My Pelham Blue Epi ES-339 plays terrific, and is totally stock except for the TonePros bridge and tailpiece. Sometimes I think about going for new soapbars, but the thought of fishing wiring in a smaller (semi) hollow body than my Casino gives me pause :eek:. The pickups aren't that bad :D

    If my sausage fingers can fish wires out of a wildkat you should be fine.

    I got this Affinity Tele from a local charity shop for £40. Swapped the neck for a chunkier Squier SE Strat one, and it now has a set of Keystones in.

    It is a strange blue this one, I really struggle to get its true colour, it is more Royal Blue than anything lighter.

    It's my beater Tele, for tough gigs, jam nights, or just to "chuck in the trunk".

    Some lovely blue guitars here, way prettier than mine.

    My 1986 Carvin is Deep Pearl Blue and my 2012 Am Std Telecaster is Mystic Blue. My DDRI is a special edition Electric Blue. I'm in the love category.

    Here's a cheap pine guitar I'm (hopefully) finishing up soon. I like the light blue and cream combination.

    I don't remember the name from choosing, but looking online I think it was the navy blue metallic. I was having a weird lighting day when I took the pic (kinda stormy bit sunny outside) so the pictures might not be how it looks most the time. I'll try to take better ones as time permits.

    I looked at every one of these blue guitars; I think they're all beautiful. I like green guitars, too, and red ones of all shades. I like 'em pink, purple, orange, yellow, white, and black. I like them with natural grain, in all kinds of woods. I like them with designs and without, with or without decals. I like them with bursts. I was going to say I don't care what color they are, but that isn't true. I just like them whatever color they are.

    I like my LPB Tele. Anyone who doesn't like blue Teles is just a very bad person :D

    I was never particularly attracted to them but since buying one they're growing on me. The price was too good to pass up.

    Definitely love them, but then I love pretty much every finish color.

    Generally don't go in for blue, but there's always exceptions. Some versions of Pelham is tolerable. Sonic or Daphne is nice on the right guitar.
