So I ordered a brand new Paul's Guitar in Faded Blue Jean from the Guitar Center Platinum website and had it shipped to my GC here in Atlanta. When I opened the case I did a double take thinking "this can't be the guitar I ordered" but I very quikly realized it was (I had been studying the grain and had it memorized).
The guitar had faded to what I would call a heavy "Faded Whale Blue/Charcoal" color. It's funny because it is very close to the color of a private stock I'm having made right now. The color looks like a custom Private Stock Color... The first pictures are of the guitar before it faded by Guitar Center. Look at the photos of the guitar where I took the bridge off so you can see the original color.
What do you guys think? The maple top and back wood grain on this guitar is superb!!! Could pass for a private stock very easily....
