Jana Jae formerly of Hee Haw fame sports blue fiddles. It is, however a beautiful thing. Google her name to find her site. The last time I heard her she was keeping CDB on his toes. It's either a transparent color varnish or stained in the wood because the beautiful grain shines through. Kinda looks like the kid in the photoshop thread. You know, the spiderman kid... can't remember his name. Someone Blued the mando he was hackin' on and cleaned up the binding.. Sure looks purty.
Your young ladies in thier rustoleum painted fiddles are another story. If you're teaching them, do what you can with what they've got and get your money up front. They strike me as getting what they want when they want and if it was Case-IH Red and Ford blue they wanted then Case-IH and Ford blue they got! I hope i'm wrong but my guess is they next gew gaw will present itself and the red and blue fiddles will show up on a garage sale selling for exactly what they're worth.
