Kinda partial to this one......The ONLY one of the past 50 or so guitars I sold that I regretted so much that I bought it back about a year later.

Sort of a Huber Krautster II in disguise.......

In 2012 Gretsch Drums had a seafoam and cream 2-tone drum kit that still haunts me. Here's one on Reverb.

They sound fantastic, too.

They made the series in a variety of 2-tone finishes, I suspect, to suggest the look of a '57 Chevy Bel Air.

I don't care what they called it--it definitely looks more like Surf Green than Sea Foam. Still, it is a swet looking kit

While nomads are cool it’s a Good thing I don’t play drums. I’d prefer to roll in a coupe deville.

It's easier to fit a drum set in a Nomad, and that was the point. Still, if you want something for the lead singer and guitarist how about an El Dorado?

I was wondering if that one was going to emerge in this thread!  ;)

Still trying to score this B08s...

Our Dad had this one when we were born, but it turned into a station wagon soon afterwards...

His was a '61, but the Seafoam and White were reversed from this one.

I found it really hard to Google a real seafoam green like yours in a '50s-'60s car. Many of them were turquoise, which was an extremely popular color at the time, and for kitchen appliances as well.

 I love it too.  Is that metal flake in the finish or a reflection?

Reflection of the disco ball in Mike's living room.

Seafoam? Here I am! LOVE that color. I bought some fx pedals only for the color (they happened to sound good, too), and I collect some seafoam stuff on my instagram account (not as often updated as I wish, though). Next on my list: A Dean Palomino in Seafoam - if a Monaco III or anything else Hamerish doesn‘t come along my way...

bright in the dark? :)

It’s just  a reflection from Christmas lights.

I’ll put you down for dibs, but I don’t plan to part ways with it anytime soon 😀

Great! This guitar fills two needs... a MIII IN seafoam. Its like Chrstmas Eve, Easter and Memorial Day all on the same day... 😊

So I understand abolutely why you don‘t have any plans of letting her go.

I just need a neck, some pickups and a bridge and I'll be all set.

What's wrong with the pickups and bridge in the pics? They look fine.
