Go to the Fender website they have all their color listed and named.
Too many beers last night i guess
Hey is this nautral body or is it painted bsb ?
It's a natural pine body with a BSB finish.
My BSB CV doesn't look particularly yellow, depending on the lighting.
Mine looks like a proper yellow.
Wow! That looks strikingly similar to my partscaster Esquire but mine is Olympic White.
Super nice JM!
I like the color of my bsb Tele.
I do remember some of the bsb Bullet Teles being pumpkin orange though.
Wasnt a big deal though. Just variety
That looks the same as capri orange
What's really proper? It's a tinted, semi-trans finish. Did they mix their own paint at the Fender shop BITD? I'm assuming in the 50s, they didn't have a specific formula. Maybe each painter at the shop, from day-to-day, used finishes with different amounts of tint. Maybe the tint was all the same color, but put more or less in, and the color probably varied. I don't know.
Was "butterscotch blonde" derived from a faded blonde nitro on an older guitar? Is that true? I always thought that butterscotch was a color that was offered. I need to look that up now...
Seems like a similar debate to what really is Lake Placid Blue, lol. For me, BSB shouldn't be as yellow.
You realize that in the paint world, the hardest colors to match/replicate are yellows.
I've never tried this nitro lacquer, but the Blond looks like the original slightly cream-ish color on vintage Fenders. It is semi-transparent, so the grain would show through. Beagle's guitar in #26 looks similar to this color. I really like it and intend to try it on a future build.
The other one that looks pretty cool is the Vintage Amber, which looks closer to some of the pics above of guitars that are more yellow.
Has anyone here used either of these in your own builds? Not cheap, but looks pretty cool.
That is a great looking guitar! I was tempted to get that color when I ordered mine (Walmart $63), but went with sunburst. Wish I had gotten the BSB, and particularly in light of seeing yours with the more rounded edge radius. I really like that feature, it makes playing a lot more comfortable. Now I have to find one of those models. I agree with all your comments above, but I did swap my pickups out for alnicos and a 4 way. Love the neck profile too.
Well, pics on Amazon, Sawtooth, and Walmart still show the BSB Sawtooth with rounded edges, but the price is up to $179 these days (though IMO, they are well worth that).
