I've been told the difference is, and you can see from the two side by side (over & under) examples in this thread already, is that the Manhattan Midnight Blue color scheme fades from light to dark from neck to bridge across the top.


Sorry but that's not what Manhattan Midnight normally is. The 'fade' from neck to bridge was only done on the 2004 Limited Edition Standard. That's not how Manhattan Midnight looks on any other year/model (it's more like a rim burst where the rim is black). Chicago blue is more uniform than manhattan midnight, and overall, darker.
