    Flavors of Blue Dawn?

    Iíve always loved blue dawn in pictures. I recently picked up a Sterling described as Blue Dawn but itís a little greener than I expected. The bass plays amazing, but it got me wondering if there were different versions of this finish, or other blue sparkle-ish finishes out there. Anybody know?

    I would check it with the serial number. The clearcoar yellows a bit and can turn blue basses to green.
    The first Blue Dawns appeared around 2000/01 and after that in 2007 as Limited Editions.

    I've got an early 2000s Sterling which I bought a few years ago; it's still very blue. I've seen photos of others which are lighter and greenish though.
