Loving that Pelham Blue

The musiczoo picture (bottom) is better. The CME red also looks much deeper and richer than the thomann pic.

Over a £100 more than the gold one, must be special paint..?

Red goes faster and blue is cooler. 😂

Lovely stuff. I want both. Debated spraying one PB a few years ago.

Oh dear. I've just been having my annual "I need an Epiphone Jack Casady" torment. This really doesn't help.

So the two "blue" ones are supposed to be the same colour? Which is closest to the real thing? I like the second version and would be mightily disappointed if it turned up looking more like the first.

I don’t know - second version seems more like what I know to be Pelham.

That red in the CME picture looks lush too.

Thomann photos are generally, pretty ropey, to the extent they are underselling their wares IMO.

Red with cream plastics would be amazing. No idea why they’ve opted for white!

I’m not sure on that - I reckon it’ll be parchment/cream. The proof will be suing them in the flesh. Which I fear would see me with 2 jack casady basses in funky colours.

One other choice and it would be Pelham 123?

Pelham Blue is typically a rip off Lake Placid Blue. I’d say neither of those pictures is accurate to what the Gibson/Epiphone Pelham Blue finishes normally look like in the flesh. Usually more like this https://www.premierguitar.com/articles/Epiphone_Announces_Limited_Edition_TV_Pelham_Blue_Collection

Gah! No idea how I didn’t notice that on first glance. It would be perfect otherwise.

That's nasty IMO.

I agree. It’s always hailed as a special or limited finish, but I think it’s one of the worst!

Wasn't that a faded or unlacquered finish?

Think it was “TV Pelham blue” where you could see the grain under the blue, they did a silver version too.

I think this “faded/aged” Pelham has a slightly greener Hue.

Likewise! Sold mine about two years ago, having decided it just wasn't the right shape for me to play comfortably, and then have spent the time since pining about it and trying to resist just buying another one. Hmm.
