I'm building a earlier 60s style partscaster and trying to decide whether to go with Surf Green or Sherwood Green. It's going to have a rosewood board, mint guard and aged white parts. I'm getting the body from Warmoth and was originally decided on Surf but then I looked at their Sherwood and kinda liked it. Anyone?

I like Fender CS's Sherwood Green with that combo, but I know zero about Warmoth's idea of Sherwood Green.

Here's another vote for Sherwood green. You don't see it that often, and it does look masculine IMHO, especially with a rosewood neck.

Between those two, I say Sherwood.
If it were me though (not that you asked) there is only one all time coolest color for a Strat, and that's Sonic Blue. :cool:

I like Sherwood with rosewood, Surf with maple.

surf or seafoam !!! but sherwood is a nice color too ...

Given the choice between the two, Surf, but of all the Fender greens I like Foam Green the best.

I went for the Surf. Hopefully it won't be too puke green but a nice aqua-leaning tone.

I think the Surf Green looks better w a maple neck, and as mentioned, you just don't see too many Sherwood Green Strats.

Surf Green. I've never cared for any shade of green darker than SG except for Seafoam Green.

I love mine... it is homemade too.

Another vote for Sherwood.

...oh no you don't...your on your own buddy!....

Sherwood green is my favorite solid color on a Fender. Don't own one, but I'll probably do a Tele build in that color one day.

A difficult choice. I have a surf green Strat and a Sherwood green Precision, both are gorgeous!

Shoreline Gold...I mean Surf Green
January 19th, 2010, 04:45 PM
I've always loved the color of a dill pickle. Yuummm.... Picklecaster.

Surf all the way:

-Definitely Surf or Sea Foam. But in the end, the choice is up to you.

in the pictures sherwood looks boring
surf green and sea foam are great but you see those a lot on strats i think
January 20th, 2010, 11:31 AM
Surf Green if it's a strat, Sherwood if it's a Tele.

... or Seafoam Green Stratocasters. Whenever my wife sees me drooling over a picture of one she just shakes her head; she can't stand the color. As much as I love the custom colored Strats, the same colors on Telecasters don't do it for me for some reason. Maybe she's right to shake her head.
