    Nice '57ri! Congrats.

    Which color is more like it in "real life"?

    Hard to tell in those "instagramy" effects-type shots?

    it was just cloudy out in most of those pics, so I think sea foam, again I could be wrong though, I'll get more pics up soon.

    Really neither here nor there. Very classy either way.

    Very, very nice.

    It needs to be re-strung properly with the vintage safety posts, though. You'll be glad you did. You could probably even do it with the strings that are already on there, too.

    Was that the final year for the AVRIs???

    yeah I need to put .10's on it, came with .09's that the previous owner strung incorrectly. And I believe the last year was 2012..

    More than likely it's Surf Green. I don't think they ever made any in Foam Green (no "sea" in the Fender color list), unless it was just a handful. I think I've seen Sherwood Green AVRIs, but never a true Foam Green. Of course, that doesn't mean they're not out there.
