    I have the same Sage Green Metallic Player Strat, which is my newest acquisition. I think it would look great with a mint green guard. Fender-Player-Strat-PF-Sage-Green-Metallic-Front.jpg

    I was thinking possibly mint green, or even like a super dark forest green if I could find that.

    First time I’ve seen that kind of decal out of the box. Well, adds charisma.

    Green Pearl might be cool too, with green knobs and pickup covers, although that might be too ostentatious. Here's some pics of mint green knobs and pickup covers, and pearl green pickguard and lime green knobs and covers.

    green green, I'm goin' away
    to where the grass is greener still.

    I like the idea of the mint green covers with dark great like that guard, but just not pearl. I really have a serious distaste for anything pearl or perloid.

    I do remember!
    Guess I’m old, my folks had that record.

    Uh, we could change the last line to:
    Green green, I’m going away to where the Strats are greener still.

    I keep seeing more and more great looking AV models and man I do not need to be GASing while I've got a new guitar on the way already!

    I was 13 when "Green Green" came out in 1963. So, yeah.... I'm OLD! (And fortunately, still loving it all!) :lol:

    By virtue of my age and where I grew up, I also got to see a lot of the great bands of the day - including The Beatles at the Cow Palace in SF when I was about 13 or 14. Then, of course, in the late sixties and early seventies... so many of the big bands of "the day", Jimi, Zep, Stones, and being in San Francisco... well... you know who all played there at that time. :) Don't regret any of that for a minute.

    It was an amazing time to be a music lover in the Bay Area. I'm four years younger than you, but I spent my weekends during the late 60s/early 70s at Fillmore West and Winterland, and weekdays after school playing guitar or hiking under the redwoods in Woodside and La Honda. It was the Golden age of Rock and the Age of Aquarius. I had a friend who's now a famous director of kid's Disney films (Kenny Ortega) who was in the SF production of HAIR at the Orpheum, and we went every night, 'cause we'd get in for free, and then hang out with the cast after the show.

    Doug... we may have sat next to each other, on the floor of the Fillmore auditorium, passing joints at one time. :lol:

    My friends and I seemed to have gone to the FIllmore, FIllmore West, Avalon Ballroom, or WInterland every other week or so for quite a while. You know all the acts that Bill Graham brought to those stages during those years. What an amazing time and experience that was! I remember Bill Graham well, as he used to introduce every band that played his venues. I was a budding guitar player - lived in Orinda at the time... 18 years old in 1968. Do you remember Roger Calkins, the music store owner in SF? And Leo of Leo's Music in Oakland? In the seventies, I taught guitar at Primo Music in Walnut Creek, which Leo took over in the late seventies.

    Not a big fan of Surf Green but the Warmoth Yellow tort guard makes it bearable.

    It’s cheap Chinese stuff but like I said I haven’t had any problems and it’s cheap so if you don’t like it not much to lose.

    Great looking axe. Do you ever find that some places seem to call Sherwood BRG and vice versa? I may be crazy, but I swear I see BRG marked as Sherwood really often.

    When it comes to stuff like pickguards, knobs, and food, cheap and Chinese work great for me.

    I once saw a turquoise relic Telecaster. One of the most beautiful Teles I've ever, ever seen. Also saw a green Melody Maker, sweet as pie. I'm afraid that a deep green (as opposed to a surf green) only works with certain models and under very specific circumstances.
