    LPB. I only have a Fender Precision Bass in that color, but a 1962-type Tele Custom in Lake Placic Blue would be nice.
    I see those can be found from Fender Japan.

    Yes I've seen the Japan versions, very nice. I'd want a fat neck though so it'd have to be a custom build I guess.

    Another boogie boy. Outstanding. And yeah, this neck is really nice.

    Personally, I think all of the blues in this post are great.

    I have a tele neck I haven't used yet. I'm working on a double bound coral T.

    These are all Musikraft. I highly recommend one of that quality and not use a Might Mite. The bodies are probably fine but I'd go with MK, USACG, Guitar Mill, Warmoth or AllParts neck. It's only a few dollars more and will make your life much, much easier.

    My 2nd tele was a blue Squier 90's MIJ tele.

    Not really sure what specific blue this was but I sure do miss having this.

    IMO it's between Daphne and Sonic.

    Since Daphne is a female name and I think of the curves of Strats and Teles as being feminine I would go with Daphne.

    Of course if a guitar invokes images of a hedgehog or a drive up burger joint then Sonic may be the better choice.:)

    I don't know the name of the color but here's mine:

    [​IMG]

    It's blue, but it seems to change color in different lighting. It can look almost black at times, sometimes it has a purple cast.

    It's similar in effect to my Candy Apple Red tele...

    I haven't seen anyone post an agave blue Tele or Strat. It's a great color.

    This STUNNING guitar - both visually and sonically - is now in my possession and I can't tell you enough what a great guitar it is!!! This guitar will be featured at the Toronto Ribfest on Canada Day in Toronto, the Burlington Ribfest on Labour Day weekend in Burlington, ON, and all subsequent Groove Hammer gigs!!!! (www.groovehammer.ca for more info).

    Bill's skill and talent for guitar building is evident in every aspect of this beauty!! A HUGE THANK YOU to Bill for entrusting me and Groove Hammer with it!!

    As you can tell, I do have a thing for Blue Teles...

    And Bill Scheltema's Premium T Class is a breed onto itself...

    How about a two-tone blue. Here's my recently completed partscaster build.

    This is a new Fender Custom Shop order I dreamed up one day and ordered...we basically took the classic ice blue metallic and had them shoot it in a sparkle finish...looks incredible to me but the guitar is currently being re-done at FCS as there were some finish and spec issues...here is a preview...everything on it is custom from wiring to pickups, round-lam maple with 22 frets no stripe, etc...end result will mimic a '66 tele that has had a lot of modifications through the decades...ofcourse TDPRI will get the full review once I have the finished product...:D
