The blue one is listed as LPB, has that colour slightly changed or are my eyes failing?

The Seafoam Green model looks a bit better on the website.

Might just be the photo but doesn't really look like LPB to me. Too bright.

Yeah, but it's only for wrong 'uns...

I've seen a similar finish on Fender japan's website many years ago. It might have even been the same model.

I do remember they had a weird name for that finish.

O, now I see that this model has a traditional bridge and tremolo system. I prefer a fixed bridge.

The blue reminds me a bit of the Pelham Blue that Gibson do occasionally.

I still prefer the CAR, although the seafoam green is kinda nice.
