    i wouldn't call shoreline gold rare. it was a custom color back in the day and a production color for several years in the 90s. definitely agree with torino red.

    huh? shell pink?rare? Dont think so. I would guess I could find about 30 for sale at any given time.

    Dark Lake Placid blue I think was kinda rare.

    Firemist Gold Metallic. Available during the mid 60s but it hasn't really been used much since.

    In the mid to late 80's Fender had a Gun Metal Blue that was so sweet - I had the chance to get one once with a RW fretboard but didn't - kick myself now...

    Don't know just how rare it was, but I always liked Graffiti Yellow:

    Around the same time in the 90's they were offering this purply blue, I think it was called Royal Blue. Again, probably not too rare, but I didn't see them very often then or now:

    But my favorite is my Sherwood Green '62 VHRRI:

    actually i heard differently that it was a color mixed up my mark kendrick? one of the builders. they seemed to be predominantly sent over to Japan. now if that "mix" was simply LPB with a yellowed clear coat I dont know. I have one and it doesnt look like its just in the clear coat. its most similar to the charcoal colors than the LPB
