What is Color Wall?
According to Fender Custom Shop website the Color Wall is a special showcase at Fender NAMM both
One of the booth’s top attractions is the color wall. Each season, the builders are given a body shape – whether a Telecaster, an Esquire, or this year’s Stratocaster – and paint each of the guitars in a different vintage color.
How are those colors determined?
The custom colors were manufactured by Dupont, who originally supplied General Motors with lacquer for their cars, such as Cadillacs, Oldsmobiles, or even Corvettes.
"What happens when people come to the Custom Shop NAMM is they get drawn to the color wall first,” said Custom Shop Marketing Manager Mike Eldred. “Seeing each of those Dupont colors is something that draws the eye. It’s part of Fender’s heritage."
This is a stunning example of NAMM guitar with amazing color!
