    I just get the genuine Fender version off ebay. I think green is more than black or white, $35 I think.

    Be careful some of them are horribly glowing. The Fender one is not too bad.

    I tend to like the Fender ones. Minty but not glowing. Any major online place has them

    Has anyone ordered or seen the Warmoth ones? Are they as glowing green as the website pictures seem to show?

    I had a WD one that could just about glow in the dark. It was more like an 80's glam green than subtle mint. The band used to make fun of it. One thing, batch to batch it seems to change even from the same supplier. Some of the Fenders vary a lot too it seems.

    The genuine Fender product appears to be the right shade of mint green. I tried an Allparts version first, and it wasn't mint - just green!

    I've had the Warmoth. I liked them and didn't feel like they were too green.

    Fender 62 Vintage is easiest to get and look good!

    +1. All the others I've seen lack subtlety and/or don't fit well.
