    I'm thinking the seller had it listed to please their spouse, but really didn't want anyone to buy it. On the other hand, if I really wanted to buy this "Vomit Green" guitar, I'm sure I would need a nice discount off the usual selling price. :D;)

    Ouch, Vomit green?
    My wife is a nurse, and if your vomit was truly that color you need to move from the nuclear power plant next door because it is leaking.


    Anyways, I do like the color.

    We do have a "Shrek Green" RKS guitar.

    A bit harsh o_O,i've always thought the 2 tone smoke green Annies were very elegant looking geets.

    Sometimes they don't photograph well but in person they look pretty.

    I've just noticed ,i don't own one yet,i should look into changing that...:D

    It is a funny colour to paint a guitar but I guess back then it was cool, I personally love it, mind you I think I have seen about 50 different shades of smoke green in pictures of anniversaries.

    Isn't it kind of an avocado green, common on some 50s appliances?

    Here is the mixer we have, the color is a but more muted, less bright on the mixer than on the Anni.
