    I hardly ever see seafoam green Custom Shop strats for sale, so I'm having a go at building my own. Here's where I'm aiming, only hardtail.

    I've already done a surf green and sonic blue! Too much time on my hands!

    I like the color and have a Squier Telecaster that's seafoam green. It reminds me of these:

    I used to love SFG 30 years ago. They didn't make it back then (at least not much) and you didn't see it often.

    Now it seems like it's everywhere.

    I love it too. They don't come up on the used market much though.

    I love the look of this one with the filtertrons and the hard tail.

    I think it's cool. Not personally my choice of colors, I'm sort of "conservative" as far as colors go. About 4 or 5 years ago my son asked for am American made Steve Vai Ibanez in "surf green". Didn't understand why he wanted either one, but he got that and an Orange Amp. No more gear for my son, considering the butt load of pedals I gave/bought for him.

    Anyway, I like the color, but really wouldn't rock one, if that makes any sense whatsoever, if that makes a lick of sense. Sort of like I saw a lime green with butterscotch checkered Lambp. Not my thing, but I wouldn't turn it down if someone gave/sold it to me at a "beer pocketbook" price.
