Originally seen on the '57 Mercury it was used by Fender from 1960 to '65. The color is a medium green with silver metallic undertones. While dark enough to apply directly over prepped wood a white primer coat is recommended. With a primer coat one can should be enough for a body and peghead. It has very subtle metallic undertones. Please take note that this color is the older and original color which is different from what Fender calls this color today. It is a very nice color.
