    Here goes:

    L-R: Hamer's "Teal"-the story I got was that this was to match Elliot Easton's swimming pool; Fender's Surf Green (a good representation); Fender's Foam Green (also referred to as Sea Foam-this is from actual Fender color chips); Warmoth's take on Foam Green; Hamer's take on Foam Green.

    Front: Hamer's Kerry Green (on the Hamer Vector-pretty accurate-same color as Surf Green); somebody's version of Foam green (a bit too dark and too blue); and Gibson's Kerry Green (on the FB1-again-accurate and the same as Fender's Surf Green).

    Foam Green is Buick, Surf Green is Chevy.
    I mean, look here for basic information:

    I own a 68 Sea Foam Green. Send me your email-address and I will send you pics of my Telecaster.

    These are Internet pictures. May not be exactly true color but should show comparative difference.

    I dig this lighter shade. Although, I'm not sure what this strange shaped guitar is...

    Is there a source you could recommend where I could buy some "Surf Green" paint for a project?

    I just received a can of surf green from Reranch and my sample matches Jack's picture of the surf green above in his post. I think Krylon or someone might have something close also. Mine will look like the one in your picture ajgus.

    I'm tempted to try something like that on a Strat.
