    It seems like the colours are a bit distorted - overexposed maybe - in the photo. So I think you're right about the translucent blue.

    Do you think that it might have damaged the guitar if it was overexposed? Do u mean, that it was left out in the sun? I hope not :/

    No, not the sun.... The amount of light that the camera let in while taking the picture. Usually referred to as shutter speed.
    Too much light (slow shutter speed) tends to wash out a picture.
    No guitars were injured during the taking of this photo!
