    I had my bass repainted in lacquer. I was going for Daphne Blue, but ended up with this. I really like the color, but what would Fender call this? Anything in their history or custom shop like this? Fender Jazz.

    Nice - it reminds me of cake for some reason.

    Or a sno-cone... It really doesn't look like any Fender color I've ever seen - although that's not necessarily a bad thing...

    I have a jazz similar in color. Not sure of the official Fender color code. I like your color. Mine is a bit more lighter in color.

    I did some more searching and found Taos Turqoise is close ... at least closer than Daphne. ghxfz0zrveffmygm9n1h.

    My reference was 'for the birds'... woodpeckers, specifically... I've seen a couple in the neighborhood... cool bass!

    Looks like a color G&L would use.

    Their configurator has it...called Belair Blue. Btw, I realize that I repeated myself with that name, from the previous post. My grandmother used to love the '57 Chevy...was her favorite.

  16. The old lacquer clearcoats used to yellow with age. I could see Daphne looking close to this over time.

    Can you get the body close up and possibly better light?
