    I was messing around with the Fender Mod shop and this color has slowly grown on me. I really want to see real world examples of it on different style guitars and with a variety of different pickguard options. Thanks in advance!

    I don't have one but it's one of my favorites. I believe it was originally from Ford's "silver blue" color:

    I'll play. It's one of my favourite Fender colours.

    Does this count? I've been told that it's actually called "Smurf Blue". Feast your eyes, gentlemen -- the one and only (based on internet searches) Vibra bass, purchased brand new in 1979 for $99 by a devoted Monkees fan who dreamed of performing "Valerie" on a local cable-access talent show called "Tiny Talent Time". :cool: vibra.jpg

    Hmm. Not close to Ice Blue.

    Perhaps start a Smurf Blue thread?

    This is my Ice Blue Metallic CS ‘60 Strat (or “Blue Ice Metallic” as it was listed in the Design Guide in 2019), parchment guard and aged white knobs/pickup covers. However, this is both “aged” and “faded”...choices within the CS Design Guide.

    OP here. You guys are the best. Great examples. I think my next build will need to be an IBM. I’m leaning towards an Esquire build with rosewood fretboard and parchment pickguard, but I’m digging the pics posted of IBM and tort pickguards, too. Thanks for indulging me here!

    Yes, the faded option definitely takes some of the bluish hue out of it!
