Vintage Fender Colors

These are pictures of my sample blocks of Fender 60's colors. I attempted to create as accurate as possible a representation of the colors Fender used in the 60's. I used Dupont paint and the colors are mixed from the NOS Dupont paint mix numbers. One side is cleared with Nitrocellulose Lacquer the other is Acrylic Lacquer.

I have photographed my sample blocks in a way that attempts to show the dynamics of a given color rather than just a flat thumbnail image. I feel this better represents the color. I am still working at making the colors more accurate. Keep in mind that I am doing this and testing it on a few dozen different computers and they are rather consistent, but the color may very depending on your display and video card.

I do not sell paint but I have provided you with the NOS paint numbers so you can have your own mixed at your local Dupont supplier. For $10 I will send you a paint stick of a given color so you can have it matched... this is primarily for people outside the United States that cant get Dupont paints.
