Fender White Chrome Pearl in Person

  1. Season's Greetings, TB!

    How is Fender's White Chrome Pearl in person? I've only seen them online, from various samples, between here, Fender's site, eBay, CL, etc.. There seems to be a lot of variation.

    I know a lot depends on lighting, angle, vision, monitor, resolution, etc. Sometimes it looks white, sometimes silver, sometimes a pretty dull grey.

    Does it vary much between samples? Or is it fairly consistent? Thanks for your input in advance.

    Ancient thread, I know...
    White Chrome Pearl is unbelievable in person. I have been looking for one of those Jazz FSRs from 2012 or so and could only come up with a USA Jazz in Blizzard Pearl. They photograph similarly enough that I thought it would suffice but in person they are not even close to the same color! Blizzard is more gray; the color of an actual pearl. White Chrome Pearl stomps a mudhole in Blizzard Pearl.

    White Chrome Pearl vs Blizzard Pearl...
    I finally had the chance to take pics of WCP next to Blizzard Pearl. The two look similar enough in pics unless they are right next to each other so here’s a good look.
    The Blizzard Pearl is the more silver while the WCP looks almost champagne in contrast but the pearlescent sparkle in WCP just can’t be beat.
    I would have loved to get a pearl white and an Inca silver to complete the lineup but we all know what silver and white look like.

    Resurrecting an old thread...
    How limited of a run was the Fender White Chrome Pearl Jazz Bass in 2011 ? I picked up a used one locally about 6 months ago (mine is Mexico 2011 model) and it is hard to find info on. I did see a Fender Telecaster guitar this color for sell locally not to long ago. Thanks

    It was pretty rare. Mine is a 2011 MIM as well. The first example of the color I saw was on a 75th anniversary Telecaster.
