    I am the first one to vote no!It is not super ugly but nothing desirable for me either.I don't think it suits a Telecaster really well either.

    I like it so much I have both a Strat and a Tele in Jade w/rosewood. It doesn't photograph good at all but looks great in person.

    I like it better than that Sage Metallic they were doing on the MIM line a while back. I just wonder why a lot of their models are only available in Black and 3 color sunburst, talk about BORING!

    This is my thought. I wouldn't get a guitar of this color, but I wouldn't dislike someone else's. It doesn't grab me, so I can't say yeah. As someone mentioned above, if I saw it in person maybe I could change my tune.

    I like it on a Strat but definitely not on a Tele.

    These colours always look different when you look at the guitar in the store rather than on screen. Looking at the picture I don't think it's my taste but if I picked it up I'd probably like it..

    I used to think the entire color "green" had no right to exist other than on my money and in nature... foresty, grassy stuff. I saw the movie "Bullit" and everyone went freakin' nuts over that hideous green Mustang and I just didn't get it.

    Green in general is still one of my least favorite colors, but after a lifetime of exposure to every color known to man...I'm finally OK with green.

    I like this Tele. I could own it...and I could smile watching another play it.

    This color is killer in person, you definitly know its green. It was a Strat at GC in rosewood. Very cool looking. Its nice to see new colors.

    I usually like more traditional colors on teles, have never really cared much for green on anything, but that's looking pretty good to me! Nice!

    Well, it's better than other colors that have been used on Fenders, so why not? I agree that it looks better with a rosewood board. Or maybe if Fender would use vintage toner on it.
