    Faded Whale Blue Finish

    Newbie here. Looking to purchase a 93' 24 Custom in Whale Blue. However the finish is really faded to a point where the blue is all but gone. The back of the guitar is still fine. I was told it was faded whale blue, but have yet to fine a picture of one so pale. Is this normal?

    Thanks

    Patrick

    Not exactly normal then, lol. I was hoping it was a particular finish, but I kind of knew better. I am sure it is still a great instrument. He also has an EG II and a Mira. I should be able to pick one.

    I checked out the guy's guitars and was not impressed with their condition. I am a little more particular about how I keep my guitars. Especially guitars that are going to cost $1400-$1500. I passed on all 3 of his. Found one on TGP I bought and returned. The seller failed to mention some headstock issues that I noticed before I even took it out of the case. Finally, I bought another PRS CE 22 96' with the Dragon I pups and just getting to know her. Sounds fantastic so far.
