This was a '60's custom color and is supposedly similar to Fender's seafoam or surf green, can't remember which.

Sorry, no pics, but I've seen original Kerry Green's in person. It's on the lighter side, closer to Fender's Surf Green but with a little more blue mixed in.

serial, thanks for the photos! :)

But, where did you get that background material? I can't find it anywhere.

Y'all can have your sunbursts, clownbursts, tiger stripey, chevron stuff. I like those opaque finishes! Some bass boat metalflake even... Now quilt tops are another story though.

The background is a photo backdrop-you can get 'em on eBay and they set up with or without a frame. Those were quick and cheezy shots using the gator clips that came with the backdrop (think it was all of $30 shipped).
