Deassembled this 1961 Fender Jazzmaster for refinish back to sunburst, or what we thought might have been sunburst. When it was refinished to this rustburst, it was clear whoever did I'd just taped over the brass shielding inserts. I removed the shield expecting to see the original burst. To my delight the original finish is Dakota Red! I can't find any hint that is was any color other than Dakota Red. So I called the owner and it was decided that it should go back to Dakota Red. Don't know if I've ever seen a Dakota Red Jazzmaster. #vintagejazzmaster #fendercustomcolor #61fenderjazzmaster #jazzmaster #dakotared #fenderguitars #nitrocelluloselacquer #guitarrefinishing #luthier #schroomcustomguitarworks
I thought about calling this one " Robin Hood", but I think "Little John" would be a little less obvious. It's 1963 Sherwood Green jazzmaster. #Fender #JazzMaster #FenderJazzMaster #FenderCustomColor #CustomColor #SherwoodGreen #Vintage #VintageGuitar #1963Fender #guitar

Ice Blue Metallic - my first use of TCP Global's nitrocellulose lacquer (have used their acrylic lacquer for years). Went on very nicely - I cut it a little with just a little straight acetone and a splash of lacquer retarder. The body is a '72 Fender P-bass (yes .. I know this color was not an option that year!!). Will be getting a slightly yellowed topcoat to emulate the finish on a mid-60s Fender. #vintagebass #vintagefenderbass #icebluemetallic #fendercustomcolor #nitrorefin #nitrocellulose #tcpglobal

If you are the lucky owner of a 1965 Custom Color Fender, your guitar case just told me it needs the @fender color chart I just listed on @reverb (link in my bio @therealdealguitarshop ). Make your guitar case happy ! #fendercustomcolor #fender1965 #1965fender #telecaster #stratocaster #vintageguitar
@perchybits owner of @broken_guitars very cool 1960 original custom color black Fender Telecaster. Bill purchased it from the grand daughter of the original owner. In 64 he sent the guitar to Fender requesting a maple neck, he got it back with a 64 maple cap neck. #teletuesday #vintagefender #vintagetelecaster #1960telecaster #fendercustomcolor #rocknroll #luthier #schroomcustomguitarworks
How about this insanely rare, original 1964 Firemist Gold Stratocaster that I was messing around with today...I know of only one other from 1964 which was custom ordered with a maple neck and documented in The Galaxy of Strats book (page 32). This color wasn't released till 1965 so very interesting guitar! It also happens to sound great! #precbs #stratocaster #customcolor #fender #fenderstratocaster #1964 #firemistgold #fendercustomcolor #guitarsofinstagram
