your sherwood is different than mine:
did somebody say 'sherwood?'
Your Strat is pretty much the "real" Sherwood green - lighter and more "frosted", which is similar to the version that Fender uses in the Custom Shop and used for a few years on the AV '59 Strats.
But Fender also uses a darker, more emerald green that they call "Sherwood Green" - besides these 2018 American Special Teles (limited run color) they were on AVRI '62 Strats and AVRI '62 Custom Teles from when they came out (mid-1998 for the Strat and 1999 for the Tele) until about mid-2000 or so, then the color made a comeback for several years on the Hot Rod Vintage '62 Strat.
In real life, mine is lighter than the pix show...very pearlescent.
I had one of these but I finally traded it in only because I prefer maple fretboards.
But every time I took it somewhere I’d get so many comments on just how stunning it looked.
I love the Sherwood green - quickly becoming one my favourites. And the brass saddles really pop against the green.
absolutely beautiful I've come close to buying that, ended up with a relic Sherwood Green.
Sherwood Green definitely has several different flavors depending on the era, and which guitar shape, strats, Jaguars, teles, it was applied to apparently slightly differently, they all look remarkably similar, but noticeably different. Mine is Sherwood Green but with the nitro finish you can see the grain, through the surface, where as the polyurethane gives it a lot more crystal glass and sparkly flavors seems like it has more metal flake lately.
Does anyone know what finish came on these guitars?
It's thin, could pass for nitro, but I can't find specs online.
I bought a body on reverb tuesday, when it arrived yesterday I discovered the bubble wrap had attacked the finish.
It left a polka-dot pattern of rough spots all over.
None of it makes sense, but I'm thinking it's not poly.
A photo, hopefully
That is a great color. Over the top!
You are talking about the American Special in Sherwood Green, correct? If so those had urethane finishes - gloss on the body and stain on the neck. Not sure what caused the reaction with the bubble wrap and the urethane finish.
I changed out the pickguard only seafoam green vitera 60s Tele from mint to white, as I just found that the colour were just too similar, and spoiled the whole look.
