    I rather like blue guitars and I've built most of them. It's a bit embarrassing to see them all together but what the H. I buy them all used or build them from used parts. Keeps the costs down.

    I'm missing some I'd like. I'd really like a big Gibson semi in a faded Pelham Blue.. but really, I count my blessings. They all get played in rotation I keep as many out as I can also my other guitarist in the band and singer borrow them and use them so they don't sit in cases.

    Blue burst G&L; it’s also more blue than it looks.

    Midnight Caribbean Les Paul; it’s actually more blue than it looks.

    I knew you'd deliver! Always tasteful and it's good to see them all in one place.

    As you know I'm using Rexter for my sonic blue thinline Tele - others may like to know that his instagram account has a very healthy proportion of blues on it.

    Looks green, but it’s Lake Placid Blue circa 1971
