    That's what happens to lake placid blue when a bass has been sitting in a green paint can for a few years.

    I actually really like when LPB turns that color.

    It can happen, like this- but that green looks mighty dark.

    +1 , good call
  8. Simple way to find out is to take the pickguard off. But I'll bet a bundle that IS Sherwood Green as its way too even looking and in too good of condition, meaning not having spent it's life out of the case, to be Lake placid Blue. I'd have to see under everything including the neck to believe it. How about a link to the ad. Do they show it taken apart? So I'm sticking with SG tell then.

    Looks Sherwood. Seems to me that except for Sherwood, all or most of the green hues in the fender catalog are inspired by deep yellowing of old nitro, which is cool.

    Look where the bridge cover was. Looks blue to me.
