Hi guys, I've got a 94 strat plus. I just brought it to a guitar shop to get setup and the owner told me I should look into which green the guitar is, because he thought it may be rarer than I think it was. Now I would never sell this guitar because it has sentimental value to me, but I'm curious to find out if he's right. I'll include a few pictures so you can see it (I put a few because the color is hard to photograph and varies in different lighting). Thanks for your time.

I don't know much about these matters, I'm just thinking off of the top of my head, but maybe there's a way you could identify the colour using a serial number.
I deeply regret the 6661 in my username. Siiiigh. Damn you, 14 year old me, you edgy little bastard.

pretty much positive its sage green. just a little too blueish to be candy green, and not blue enough to be sherwood green

Doesn't look silver enough to be sage green imo... Looks like Sherwood.


Sherwood looks the closest to me too. The sage green is a lot more pale.

EDIT -
The people below talking about Bahama Green are pretty much spot on, in my opinion.

From that color chart I have to agree.

But from what I know about the Strat Plus series, I think that it is actually a variation of surf green. I know in the early-mid 90's especially with that series there was a lot of arguing and confusion about the color because practically every surf green strat plus was a different shade. Some darker, some lighter.

appears to be an 80's strat plus.

i'm sure there is a short list of greens they came in. (i'm guessing sherwood as well).

damn nice guitar.

^ This is correct. There was a very limited run of the Strat Plus in Bahama Green. Exceedingly rare.

That 1988 Bahama green looks to be the exact color. I've looked up the serial number before, it's definitely a 1993-94 strat according to the serial. Is there any way to look up which colors the strat pluses were available in for each year? I've founded info on 80s strat pluses in bahama green, but nothing on the strats from the 90s. Thanks for the help so far guys!

I've done some intensive research on your behalf and could find no information whatsoever for mid 90's models in Bahama Green... are you positive of the dating on your's? just a thought...

seems to me like a lot of the colors on that model varied year to year, and that some colors
werent list as being available even though they were, for that year.

you can post your serial number here if you'd like someone to look into the dating more.
(serial numbers are not like social security numbers)
no one can use it to steal your guitar's identity.

if you dont want to post it, that's fine.
i'm sure you can contact fender via email...

http://www.fender.com/support/articles/contact-consumer-relations

and get a response within the week.
see if they give you anything more specific.

i've found them to be hit or miss as for as knowing
more than me.

either way, you've got your color and a nice guitar
