The color is Sapphire Blue. It weighs 6 lb. 13 oz, a full 2 pounds lighter than my Classic Vibe 50’s. I wanted a humbucker guitar, I haven’t owned one for over 30 years. This is a nice guitar. I’ll put some 10’s on it, and it needed some minor adjustments with action, pickup height, and intonation. It sounds great, I really like these pickups. I’ve been playing a lot of jazz on my single coil guitars, and this Thinline gives me some more tone options in that genre.
