    I think autumn glo is supposed to be more brown, but that's a damn nice burst. Any trade interests?

    Some notes, if I may. The dark blue one is indeed Midnight Blue. It took over from Azureglo (AZ) in 1985. Midnight Blue (MID) came standard with black trim (binding, pickguard, truss-rod cover) and hardware (tuners, pickup surrounds, tailpiece, strap pins) from its introduction through 1998 when it was fitted standard with white/chrome trim. MID started as very dark (like yours) but varied over the years; some quite bright metallic blue, others drifted to a more purple shade.

    The red burst one is definitely Fireglo. Autumnglo would be a pure brown burst.

    The three controls on the 3001 are volume, bass boost (actually treble cut) and treble boost (actually bass cut).

    Nice collection! Good luck with the sale!
