Congrats again Matt! Such an amazing find, I’m glad you scored this one, it’s in good company.

That is my favorite Fender custom color and like you mentioned, it’s nothing at all like what Fender calls Sherwood Green today. It’s probably further away than any other custom color from the original shade.

Perfect! And in amazing condition, so cool
Thank you so much!

Now I hate you. Give me a couple of years and I’ll get over it. :freako:

What an amazing find! Very cool indeed & a perfect addition to that crazy collection.

Is there a particular custom colour you're still on the look out for? Your holy grail?

Not anymore, Sherwood Green and Inca Silver are pretty much it haha I would still like to find a Lake Placid, Burgundy Mist would be cool too 8)

They're all the real deal and all original minus the Mastery bridges. The clear coat on the gold has yellowed from UV over time so it looks like Firemist, its lighter in the cavities. The Inca is a very special one and will probably go to the grave with me haha
So is it Firemist Gold?

Holy....

I have a dream where I own every color of Charvel Surfcaster 12 that came from the factory.

(I almost had it- I had 5 of the 6 at one point, and will bucket-list those suckers if it's the last thing I do...)

This looks a lot like the grown-up version of that dream. Vintage Fender Jags in custom colors.

Congrats, man! That's quite a collection!

Honestly, I go back on forth on it, but it was advertised as Shoreline when I got it so I go with that.

You've achieved the status where nobody on this board would bat an eye if you pronounced it "jag-you-uh."

That collection of custom colors makes me want to pronounce it however YOU would.

Cant stand the mastery bridges...think they really spoil these guitars. But hey apart from that they look amazing...I love the Inca Silver especially! I have a 64 shoreline gold jag myself. Are you 100% its shoreline?? Every gold '65 I've even seen is firemist.
