    Bianchi Celeste paint color code

    I am not sure if this is common knowledge, however for those of you needing or looking to have your Celeste Bianchi repainted, the color code is:

    Pantone-#332.

    I was told by Bianchi USA that there are a few variations, so take a same to the paint shop and they should be able to match it.

    hope this might be of help.

    Pantone 332 is Seafoam green



    Fender guitars are also made on that color.



    spade2you, here is something for you ;)

    Haven't owned a Fender in years, although I'm thinking of some lighter turquoise inlays in an upcoming 6 string bass from a builder I dig.

    Good info guys.

    Do you know if Bianchi dealers sell celeste touch up paint? My 1885 has a few rock chips that I would like to cover up.

    Thanks,
    Josh

    Bianchi has registered many colors. If you look at the early 1980's adds, they had the pantone chip and color # in the adverstisement. They use 9 shades above that color and 9 shades below that color. (according to a Bianchi sales rep). The problem with the touch up paint is that every year is slightly different, some years more blue, some more green. Get custom paint matched or find a hobby store that still sells those old model paints, hundreds of colors to choose from and can be ordered.

    Good advice -- I was going to add that Bianchi has had MANY many shades of celeste over the years, including some with a pearlescent look. And the stock colors were bluer or greener in some years...really old Bianchis (50s/60s) generally have a lot more of a blueish tone.

    And while Bianchi USA does offer bottles of touch-up paint through their online store, it may or may not match what is currently on your bike.

    They do have the small touchup paint, however I was looking for the paint code so I could get enough to spray a bike (specifically a fork).

    I really appreciate your reply....Jon
