...Then again, I've always had a thing for green guitars (and have had four at this point).

That's the same shade as the Cadillac Green Gretsch used in the mid 50's on their Country Clubs and a few Duo-Jets.

I used to have a green flamed maple double cutaway Gibson LP. I wish I hadn't sold that.

I think it looks pretty sweet. But I don't think they did either green or chambers back in the day, did they? So this is a modern guitar with vintage appointments, I suppose.

Ritualee hit the nail on the head - a modern "custom shop" guitar based on the '57 Historic LP Custom.

Late 90s they made the Emerald Les Paul Studio Gem with P90s that was that color or darker (usually darker).

The earliest green LP that I've seen was a 1980 standard. it wasn't transparent though. It was very dark, almost black, really nice looking. anyway, accurate or not that green custom is pretty cool.
