Well ... here's the thing, which I have already discussed with two S-T members. I ordered the Ocean Blue. But I think I got the Turquoise. The inner box said the model was the blue but the seal had been broken. The store rep told me he doubted the store had sent the wrong finish and said maybe it came that way from China. But as for the guitar itself, I took it to my guitar shop "guy" who said the nut seems to be cut OK. The action is a tad high but there is still a lot of space in the bridge to adjust. The strings are junk. The tuners seem OKish except the G and B seem to slip some, which was mentioned in another review I've read. However it plays very well with a slim neck (good for my smallish hands) and it sounds very good on the clean settings I use. The pickups are a little noisy, however, as others have noted. Fret ends could use a little smoothing. No body flaws or neck or fingerboard problems I can find. Overall it is well worth the money I paid for it which was under $90. Tomorrow when I have time I will try to upload a picture of it next to my surf-green Squier VM Jag and maybe my pure white Monoprice California Classic for color evaluation. I don't have any other comparable blue guitars to use for comparison. I will try to use natural light filtering in through my apartment window because I know that electric lights can change the hue somewhat.
