Lake Placid blue

Recommended Posts

Has it changed?

Here's my 2020 Mustang and my 1992 jazz bass, both lake placid blue but also different colours, has time changed the bass or is the colour different now?

You need to check the Ford colour charts from the early 60's for a definitive answer :)

To my eye, the bass on the right is LPB

Haha, slap bang in the middle of the two colours in question (on my screen anyway) :)

It's a screen thing. I posted that pic because on my screen it's so obvious that the bass on the right is the correct colour while the bass on the left is wildly different.

I remember nearly buying this , which looks like the one on the left because I questioned the colour and was told it was ice blue

Certainly looks like Ice Blue

Or perhaps the colour balance in the OP's photo has been distorted by the presence of peach-coloured plastic sandals?

Is this like that dress thing, and the bass is really yellow or something?

I'd say the jazz is much closer to 60s lake placid blue and I  doubt that with poly finishes your basses would of changed colour that much, is it weird how much they vary and age differently though when you compare pics of pre cbs instruments

For better contrast, both sold as LPB

Left bass is not LPB on my screen for sure

Both lovely colours, I'm  very partial to Ice Blue at the minute

I'm not too upset as it is a fantastic guitar just thought it would match my bass

I wouldn't let it get to you, you'll get the guitar refinished to match, then prefer that version of LPB slightly to that of the bass, then get the bass refinished to match.

Then sell them both because you fancy a change to Burgundy Mist..... :)

I’d like a bass the same colour as the slippers actually 🙂

Could the Mustang be Tidepool? Assuming it's a Mexican, it's one of the standard colours for basses in the Player series. Certainly looks very close to my Jazz in colour terms.

Yup, I posted a Cadillac to point out that it wasn't actually Ford colours that Leo used, it was DuPont colours and they were used across the industry AFAIK.
