I've already posted this picture in a few spots within the forum but here it is again to show the difference between Fender Blonde and Butterscotch Blonde. The left is Reranch Fender Blonde. It was more white than I thought it would be but I think it really looks good. Even better in person. I'm going to use regular Reranch clear nitro on it for it to age over time. I love the Butterscotch Blonde as well but I am excited to be doing one like they were done in the early 50's.

I remember that, Sam - I think you posted a pic of the swamp ash body on the left while it was stil nekkid. That's the one that came from the same tree as my butterscotch swamp ash body!! Smile

That pic helps a lot. Cool

Yeah, the orange would be cool... can I change my vote from pink to orange? Razz Even if noone else has given their views on it, I still think that white binding would look amazing with the orange + pearloid guard

Sam's photo shows the difference really well. With some tinted clear it would be slightly darker, but still lighter than butterscotch. Cool
