After looking at your great photos again, I´m curious ... it seems like the green is really changing a lot depending on the lighting and the background. Is it really like this in the flesh? The surf green ones I have seen so far were more "flat" looking and didn´t have this kind of "depth". Perhaps this is due to the partially worn nitro finish?
Anyway, awesome guitar!

Well, first of all, I was not totally expecting this guitar to be as nice as it is.

I dont even like one-piece maple neck Fenders. I’m a rosewood kinda guy, but dang, the profile on this neck is amazing.

Okay, so this is a 2011 Fender ‘57 AVRI in Surf Green i got in a trade. Its in players condition, but it looks like light relic model. Its real play wear from a gentleman who gigs this guitar and is a staple in his rotation. But its weird in a way that the neck is pristine. Lol. I thought this is a scame because it’s a long distance trade but it turns out to be legit.

Case reeks of cigarette smell. And nitro smells funky. Lol

Anyway, I cleaned it up as it was filthy as, and put 11-52’s, then set it up. here’s the photos for those who likes visual stimulation.

Hi sir! Yes it kinda changes a bit depending on the background.

I do agree about that “flat” looking look with these colors. I had a Daphne Blue tele that is like that. That the color just seem to stop at the surface. Unlike, some colors that look deeper, lets say a Candy Apple Red one.

Here’s a few more photos I took, it still is a bit different everytime. I corrected the white balance and colors to make it look like what I really see in reality.

wow, that is one sweet looking Strat! Congratulations. Once that white pickguard gets a little wear on it, lookout. That green is killer.

I actually havent seen a worn surf green with worn pickguard/pickup covers! You’re probably 3rd or 4th person who told me that. They were in strat-talk.

It must look nice?

You gotta be kidding me, right?! Well done, that is one heck of a deal :cool:

No sir. I also couldnt believe it as well.

Besides the fact that both guitars have to be shipped because its a long distance trade. I got him to ship first because I’m too skeptical, and I also told him about the value of his guitar.

to “even” things Out, i have to pay for shipping for both guitars. My 295 actually just arrived in his home after 7 day shipping. He’s very happy and loves it. So this 57 is now officially mine.
