    I came accross this the other day. Can someone tell me what color this is called? I've compared it to Fender's Lake Placid Blue, Sonic Blue, Seafoam Green and Surf Green but it doesn't match any of those. It's all original down to the pickguard screws and the headstock is interesting in that it has Leo Fenders signature on a decal as well as a "Patent Pending" decal. I think the treble clef symbol between the "G" and the "L" on the headstock is cool too. The tone it to die for. Thanks for your help.

    That color looks like it would be what G&L calls Baby Blue. They still offer that color.

    Someone told me that G&L made a color called Belair Green after the 1955-1958 Chevy Belair. This looks too blue to be that.

    That is actually a treble (or "G") clef.
