That's not exactly what I wanted to hear. That means if I have to buy used, a Midnight Blue will cost me more!

Was a nice color.

Tom: If we can say anything about the passage of time and guitars, it is safe to say that some owners will tire of a particular finish and want to move on. Keep your eyes on this space. :)

A shame, as I love Midnight Blue. Especially the really "Sparkly" MID.

Wow, this is news. It has been a standard option for as long as I have loved Rickenbacker instruments. Hopefully, they replace it with something else. I do love every picture I have seen of AzureGlo.

I just picked up the very last Midnight Blue 360 in Musiciansfriend’s stock ... it is brand new - not a return or refurb, and they let it go for 1514! I feel really lucky tonight!

Why is it that finishes seem to be more desirable and sought after once they have been discontinued? "Don't it always seem to go ..." :)
