    Hi guys...
    I wanted to find either some pics or information on the "jewel" colors Fender offered on some of their 70's/80's Jazz basses. I saw a jewelish blue color on a Jazz that was SO beautiful. I've searched low and high, and can't find any info on these.

    Does anyone here know the exact name of the colors, and does anyone here have any pics of said basses? I'd give a kidney for a jewel blue jazz/maple blocks and bound...

    Here are two of the blues that Fender offered back then - the first (Maui) was from the "International Series", and the second, from the "Jewel Series", (Sapphire) was from a bit later, sometime around 82/83 if I remember correctly. Probably the Sapphire Blue you are thinking of.

  3. i wonder where those strats are today... i've never seen such finishes on them, they must be rare!!
