    "Grabber Green" is the finish. If my memory is correct it's from the late 60's / early 70s Mustang. If you ever wanted to try your hand with a 6er this is it!

    Beautiful, I might have to pick one up. Will it come in a 4/5 string?

    How are these names for different shades determined? Is there like a design standard that has particular shades named a particular way? Or does someone like in in Marketing just come up with a name so different companies might have different colorful names for the same shade?

    Years ago I looked up the history of Hugger Orange, the best I came up with that the ones who invent it (decided to use the specific shade) get to name it.

    I just searched and couldn't find that specific take... begs the question on painting my walls in "Distant Star" could I have had the color made by any manufacturer?

    This particular green is a Ford color.

    COLOR NAME: FORD "GRABBER GREEN"
    COLOR CODE: Z
    CHIP NUMBER: PCCL27

    It was popularized on Boss Mustangs.

    But there also appears to be a Grabber Green Lime, and sometimes it is conflated with the Boss color which leaves me to believe two different colors can have the same name, or that manufacturers are not bound to agree on color names... I hope someone corrects me if I'm wrong, because I'm also curious.

    Yeah Will it's the same exact finish that was on those Boss 'Stangs...As far as how they were named in the 60's and 70's I have no idea. Sometimes we use the stock name if it's cool and other times we will rename it.

    Guess it will be featuring stainless steel frets.
    Any info on body wood material?

    Must be getting close to being released. The pic on the BFR page is no longer blurred. But clicking it gives a 404 page not found
