    Seafoam green, cerulean blue, ocean turquoise, daphne blue that becomes seafoam green and lake placid blue that becomes teal as they ages - lay it on me. I want acoustic guitars, electric guitars, basses, amps and pedals. Thank you.

    How about the dreaded avocado-colored kitchen appliances!
     
  4. Now watch marketing rebrand it as “Guacamole” and it will (shudder) make a reappearance.

  6. This is why I like the Surf Green on beautiful Fender guitars and basses. My dream ride.

    To put a cap on this (I originated this poopiepost thread) I bought a G&L Fallout Tribute bass yesterday from a fellow talkbass member who is local to me. It is "surf green".

    It is like the night of the living zombies ... you can fight against them but eventually you'll get tired, they'll get your soul, and you become one of them.

    I hope you are enjoying your new bass as much as I am enjoying the fact that these two posts came less than 3 months apart :D

  10. I like your thinking there. I feel the same about metallic colors on guitars, to me they just seem wrong and don't go with wooden necks, but I understand that my thoughts are as driven by personal bias, or irrationality, as any one else's preferences about color, or other finishes. (I also confess to really liking Surf Green along with natural wood under clear finishes.)

    Because paint hides the simulated wood grain predominant on many Fenders.

    Love all the old DuPont Duco car colors from the 50s; fiesta, surf, sea foam, etc…..

    I’m not a huge fan of the color, but i was at my local GC Friday to trade in a bass amp for a guitar amp and tried out the Fender Deluxe PJ in seafoam pearl and it felt and sounded so great that it came home with me instead of the amp. View attachment 4323143

    I got it! I’m more the Kurt Cobain generation, sadly.

  20. Beauty is in the beholder. To each their own. Usually I do not care for the color ,but am beholden the Squier Mustang reissue in the color.
