    Would this be considered a Natural Blonde?.....Only her hairdresser knows for sure! Or you could always check 'down below'. Know what I mean?
    Is it true Blondes have more fun? Well I sure do playing with this one.
    I call her 'Aunt Polly"

    Why all the questions? Has the Fender Olympic White been discontinued? I still have mine from 1991, and it still has the showroom look to it!

    My favorite shade/version Tele blonde is from 1953.

    This post is a disappointment.......................................drawn in by the title, stuck with it until Controller's post produced little of interest!

    I like white blonde, aged white blonde and regular blonde. Never really cared for BSB. Honestly there's more blonde finishes than I knew existed. Edited to add this is my white blonde Fender Classic Series '50s Esquire.

    I've got a couple of blondes: BSB on the left, Honey Blonde on the right. They've darkened some, I think. The pic is close to two years old, but the guitars are older: 2011 and 2009, respectively.

    I also have a couple that are au naturel, that are also on the lighter end of the color spectrum...

    as opposed to one with a mahogany body, and the other Longleaf pine stained walnut...

    Why are white guitars considered "blondes"? Shouldn't they be "old hags" or something if you follow that train of thought?

    Actually I have a couple of white guitars and I would never compare them to women's hair, or even women for that matter.

    I've got the Classic 50's White Blonde and it's the strangest color...
    Depending on how the light hits it it's either pink or beige or some non-existent intersection of the two... or sometimes just a light mocha.
    Should have been called Lovecraft Blonde. :D

    Hmm?
    This is like the 59 Les Paul thing...
    There's actually one colour... what gets offered up today is based on trying to replicate a certain degree of lacquer aging, not strictly "blonde".

    I have a neck and pickups for the project.
