Someone in Japan is selling a pink Elan on eBay. Looks magnificent!

I have recently bought this guitar but not from eBay. This store was in a used shop.

The colour is violet. I think the lighting is bright in the picture. But the colour is fading.

Is there any chance you could post better pictures, maybe in natural light?

Thanks for the lovely pictures and the serial info. No need to apologise for anything!

What is the official colour name and perhaps colour code for that purple Elan? And could you tell me more about the other family members - colour, serial, branding on the headstock, and if you're the original owner for any of them?

I believe it is VBS (violet blue sunburst).

The other three are already registered on this site. But I have yet to provide you with the ownership history. I will have to dig through my emails.

Are these Heartfields or the later Fujigen Elans?

These are by Fender and not Fujigen.
