    Was on Fender's website and saw this Mystic Blue New for 2013 American Standard's

    Personally, I like it much better than the Jade Pearl that came out in 2012

    What's your thoughts?

    My son has a Squier Affinity in a colour that looks very close.

    Due to that, it looks kinda cheap IMO.

    I know which Squier you're talking about and can see your point.

    I'll have to see it in person and go from there.

    I originally dug the Jade Pearl because in certain pictures or the way light was hitting it looked good, but when I saw it in person, it was hideous

    I much prefer the Jade Pearl Metallic to this one. That shade of blue looks cheap to me. As always, YMMV...

    I actually dig it, particularly on the P Bass.

    Kinda the same, though the Mystic would probably be more reflective and slightly darker in person than the Metallic Blue on the Squiers which are (IMO) a bright blue in person. Just a guess. Personally, I don't like it. I wish they just released another green color for crying out loud. Just give us a seafoam green option and call it a day, Fender.

    Its a bit more metallic then the Squier, but looks almost the same really. They should just bring back some of the older more classic colors instead of stealing their Affinity paint from China and re-mixing it.

    As long as they dont get crazy and get rid of LPB on the MIMs before I get one I will be happy.

    White pearloid would look great on this.

    GC & MF are showing an amber colored Fender Jazz coming out in a couple months. I don't know if this is only for GC & MF or available everywhere but it looks freakin awesome.

    Really, mistic red and mistic blue. That's the best colors Fender can up with for 2013?

    They need a leopard print with a black pickguard. I'd be all over that. :D
