This should be in the eBay area, I know.  But forget the sales part of this for a moment.  What's up with green here?  The HJS is a traditional archtop.

I have to admit that the color does grow on me as time passes.

 

 

Here are some other unusual finishes in the same model.

I do not like green or blue guitars. Except the blue one I own, but that's different. Guitars should never be green or blue (except the one I own). There is no room for debate on this topic. I would be willing to discuss the inappropriatness of clown puke burst or that awful maraschino cherry red (not the good Luxardo ones, either, I mean the fluorescent grocery store ones). Blue and green, however...non-discussable.

You could always ban green guitars from this forum forever!

Green and blue. And clown puke. And that ugly maraschino red. ;) Wait, we might also want to include black on archtops in the ban.

Vince is a great guy; met him at one or two of the PSPs back in the day. During the Barn Era, IIRC. I will give him a pass on playing a green guitar because, well, he's Vince Lewis.

And while you're at it throw out all photos of that "Fugly" headstock. 😉

So there are drab greens and elegant greens.  We know greens are good for you.

Look, we have a new administration in the White House.  This is my Green New Deal.

Sorry, but that Olive L5 just looks .... drab!   I don't think I would even play it unless it was in a dark room.

The 555, on the other hand, is welcome to stay at my place anytime it wants.   Its exactly what I said before,  Green, gold accents,  nice binding.    Heck, its even in my high school colors... green and gold!    It makes me feel 17 again.

Maybe I can play it at the sock hop. :thumbsup:

Green and Gold the color of the dream I had.... Not so long ago.  Misty Blue and Lilac too....

It arrived safely.  My wife, who is an artist, was surprised to open the case and see green.  She normally doesn't examine guitars but she did this one.

Her first words were, "I don't not like the green."  She looked it over for a while, approved of it, and said everyone should have at least one green guitar.

My teen son thought it was the best color.

It needs some cleaning but otherwise is very well built with a great neck and action.
