Can anyone tell me what two colors make up Fender's Skyburst Metallic
Or colors to get close to that look.

Looks like Pelham Blue base with a Lake Placid Blue burst.

I thought about using those two colors as a burst about two years ago, my favorite Gibson blue and my favorite Fender blue, I think I just might give it a try.

I'd say for fender colours it's Lake Placid Blue over what they call Ice Blue Metallic.

I'm with Mark. If I was going to spray that, I'd use pelham as a base and burst it with LPB.

I am actually going forward on this project with Pelham & Lake Placid as the colors, I am figuring on one can of each for the colors but how many cans of clear would I need? I'm planning on at least 10 coats of clear

I use about 3 cans, but it gives a lot of coats. Metallic needs more coats so you don't sand down into it. I use a can at least, following Reranch's Rule of Threes, then lightly sand, then final coats prior to letting it cure for a couple weeks, before sand and polish (400 lightly!-2500)

I'd do Ice Blue Metallic and then just blue transtint for the burst (or blue candy). Why reinvent the wheel, you've already got the metallic in the first coat Wink
