Pearl Blue

Postby chatbass » Sun Jan 28, 2018 5:41 pm

A question. Has Kiesel "lightened" the Pearl Blue finish over the years? I've looked at pics in the older catalogs and photos of older Carvins with this finish, and the older ones seem to be much darker (which I prefer) than newer guitars with the Pearl Blue finish. The reason I'm asking is I'm considering ordering a bass in Pear Blue, and I prefer the darker finish.

Yes, it is s different color than it used to be. They've tweaked several finishes over the years... Even better ones.

Thanks. Thought it looked different somehow. I might still go with that finish, though.
