I am looking at a 360 on ebay. The seller says its yellow. Could it just be white that has aged that color or relly yellow?

According to this color chart, it would have to be white aged to yellow.

Sometimes white ages to a nice cream color. But I've heard reports of white which turns to various shades of yellow - some of them pretty ghastly sounding.

fears this thread goes to the wrong chapter:
Was the "tuxedo-option" only available for 4003? Maybe the talked yellow 330/60 etc. could be a tuxedo one...

Tuxedos were not limited to 4003's. The fretboard would have to be white (or yellow, as the case may be) for it to be a tuxedo.

For what it's worth, we HAVE produced some yellow guitars, years ago, for the German market. I was thinking they were all 620's but it's been a long time. Vintage white is more likely.

Gosh! Did they give you any idea what is special about the German market that they would want yellow as a color?

The demand of course.
I think it could be a fashion-thing. The Vintage-hype was/is extremly on going in Germany. "Vintage white" is one of prefered colors on many no-gibson-related guitars, even duesenberg do them. Remind you that fender got´s (the one and only?) "Custom shop lounge" in Düsseldorf, Germany. There is also a huge market for collectors here. Anyway, what "yellow" is talked about? I got the "chris squire"-cream-yellow on my mind...?

A while back, I had an e-mail exchange with Jingle-Jangle and by the time we were done, he had me pretty well convinced a LemonBurst was not only do-able but could look mighty fine on a RIC. Worth some thought.

Best,

MMM
