Damn now I want to see this green one.  

It's in that Two-Tone Smoke Green like on the old Gretsch Anniversary models.  I'll have to look around for pics, but I've got them somewhere...

When it became an issue here on the HFC, I called the factory, nope, sorry sold. I am sure it was too rich for my blood at that time. However, it is a beautiful looking guitar. I know someone got yelled at for taking too much time for building the pick guard, which looks amazingly cool on a guitar that should not have a pick guard.

Jazzburst. This is the first one I’ve seen that is a different color.

I figured it was that or Tobacco sunburst from the pics I’ve seen. 

Hamer's burst naming got confusing towards the end, but officially the standard N90 color was Tobacco Burst, an amber-to-burnt sienna burst. Jazzburst historically tended to be an amber-to-black burst but drifted into Tobacco Burst territory towards the end.

Okay Gretsch green and a pickguard rings a bell. I think I’ve seen a photo of this one before.

One difference between the tobacco burst and the jazzburst (aka the finish of champions) is that the jazzburst has a burst on the front and back (including the neck)    Tobacco burst only has a burst on the front.

Probably sacrilege but the first thing I would do is remove the pickguard.  I don’t like how it covers the f hole.  It just seems wrong on this guitar.

I agree, I hate pickguards anyway
