    Got a new Fender Stratocaster, in what I think is my new favorite classic color. Not shure what modell this is. Will take off the neck later and check, and maybe try to change the neck to a st57 neck, for a more classic look. Sherwood green with a rosewood neck would be even better. Fender Japan have for several years used Sherwood green on the Hybrid series, so would love if they made a Traditional 60´s using that color.

    Sherwood Green is a FANTASTIC colour – HNGD!!! That's quite the collection you have there... if I recall correctly, you also have some red Strats? How many Strats in total do you have!? Are you trying to get one in each colour?

    Gorgeous! On lighter greens rosewood is fine, but darker ones and maple are made for each other...

    You've gathered all of my favourite colours on a couple pics? What are you trying to do to my bank balance? :)

    That sherwood green with maple and aged covers look fantastic. Definitely something I would need down the line

    Yes I´m looking for the "classic" colors from the 50´s and 60´s, but also all the years avaliable, like 65, 66 etc, and variation like hardtails. I think I have 50 now, and #51 on the way!

    I don´t know. It has 22 frets, so I was thinking it might be a st57-22, but it has modern tuners, so I´m thinking it´s som kind of standard. Will remove the neck and look for info. It´s got a Made in Japan J-serial.

    Edit: The blue on is a 2015 st57 in OLB, old lake placid blue.

    Very cool! Good luck with it – and fair play to you!!!! It will be quite the spectacle when complete! I had thought about doing this at one point, but I realised I simply wouldn't have the funds to undertake such a mission, not yet anyway... I am now in the process of putting together a much smaller collection, basically a collection of Sunburst-only Fenders – one of each... Jaguar, Jazzmaster, Mustang, P-Bass, Jazz Bass – Teles (sixties bound and '50s Ash) – and two Strats, '50s and '60s – all 2 / 3 Tone Sunburst.

    MAYBE in the future, I will allow myself *one* colour, when I have acquired everything else – and I should imagine that would be a '60s Fiesta Red Strat, but that's probably a couple of years away!!

    Good luck on your quest – there's a lot worse you could be spending your money on, and in time – it will be worth quite the sum of money, should you ever wish to cash in :thumb: !

    Very nice color...but you pull out some tears from my eyes by wanting to change that nice maple neck for rosewwod.... HNGD, and it's yours not mine, so you do what ever you like.
