    "It's not easy being green."

    Fender guitars lend themselves to bright colors.

    It might match your existing tools. Ryobi anyone?

    ...that honour should be reserved for the player wearing it.

    Ugly....but also wrong. Electrons are blue. :)

    Cherenkov radiation, the movement of electrons through a medium such as water, gives off a characteristic blue color. To my eyes, it looks like cerulean blue...which would be a fantastic Fender tele color.

    Maybe Fender is listening.

    .

    That color makes me think of a Popsicle, or a green version in the same lightness shade of the Orange Pushup.
    Either way, it would make me seek out the ice cream truck girl every time I looked at it on the wall or played it, and I don't need all those calories.

    There was a lot of backlash on that other brand with the weak headstocks when they did it a few years back.

    The color does fit the Fender brand a lot better and could work.

    Kinda weak shade of green, could have gone with something stronger.

    I’m all about colorful guitars but even I don’t like this green. I think it looks cheap. I feel the same way about fiesta red. It’s the only fender red I wouldn’t buy.

    If you're speaking 'first hand', I'd see a doctor if I were you. :eek:

    Yikes! Guess I could start with the shirt and get my singer to wear that other outfit. That would really "spice" up our jazz combo:eek:

    I looked at the pictures and thought.....Nah. Modern bridge. ;)

    The more shades of green, the better, for me.

    I'd buy one. That is, if I didn't have more guitars than I need already. But I think it's kinda cool and certainly a change-up on their colour roster!

    The Camaro is what I call, “Hot Wheels Green.”

    I love it, but I'm thinking it wouldn't have the neck carve I prefer or the S1 I've come to really like lately either. I might grab one anyway though :)

    Been there, done that, got the surgery, much better now.

    I came out of the situation with Coricidin bottles, though.:D
