Question Blue agave?

Hello,

I'm selecting a color for my P-bass right now, and I've got my eye on blue agave. But on the Fender color chart it may look different than in person.

Does anybody have any pictures of a Fender with this color, that they'd be willing to share? This would really be appreciated.

Re: Blue agave?

Ah, I found a couple here on Jemsite and also on a site of a store. Check it out.



You see, that's what I mean; on the Fender color chart it looks waaay different. A lot bluer. In reality it's much greyer. Hmmm.... I'm not sure yet. I'm going to keep looking at different colors.

If you color-correct the image it will change the color ever-so-slightly, but not much from what it's at right now.

Re: Blue agave?

I have to say, Courtney, that selecting the color for my P-bass is kinda driving me bonkers! On the color chart, I don't think there's one color that really does it for me. Which is strange, because there are so many. Perhaps violet, but I'm not sure about that one, either.

With your post, you mean that the picture I posted is an accurate depiction of what the color would look like in reality?

Re: Blue agave?



Check this out. This color is ice blue metallic. The difference with blue agave isn't that big, isn't it?

I like it, but I would have liked it better if it was bluer. Nevertheless, this color has more of the shinyness (is that a word) that the blue agave has on the Fender color chart, which I like. The pic I posted of the blue agave is more greenish and greyish, to me. And more flat.

I think I'm going to go with ice blue metallic. But I'm not 100% yet. I'll just keep looking at various finishes.

Re: Blue agave?

Thanks a million.

I'm going to buy it, but I don't know when. My budget doesn't allow me to get one now. But when I've got it, I'll post a lot of pictures of it!

And this one's called chrome silver. Look at the differences between these three colors... They vary only gradually. Interesting.

No, I'm saying that the pic you posted is not an accurate depiction.

The wall behind the guitar is supposed to be white, and in the picture it is not...it's off white. If you have something like Photoshop to adjust the color to correct this it will also change the color of the guitar slightly. However, the color-corrected version of the guitar doesn't look much different than the pic you posted. I can send you the pic if you want. Just send me your email.
