    If you going green, seafoam is the answer.

    I have one. You can see tiny gold flake in the paint. I like it because it's different, but finding that color again in touch up paint has been impossible so far.

    I'm not a huge fan of the "contemporary" Fender colors. I guess that makes me old.

    Put me down for -Yah.

    It's different enough from what we see around here everyday. Who really likes BSB anyway?

    I had to vote no :( Do I think it looks good? Yes. Would I own it? No. I think Sage Green Metallic was better IMO.

    I think voodooblues said it best: I wouldn't buy that color for myself but I don't find the color ugly.

    I like it, but it needs a different color pickguard.

    I'm not crazy about it, but than again, de gustibus et coloribus non est disputandum. If you like it that's all it matters, unless it's a market research.

    I like it, especially with rosewood board. Not as much as Sherwood though.

    I like that it's cheaper than the naturals but it's not my favorite

    If I had bought a Standard instead of the Deluxe this would have been the colour. Yes, like it!

    Celadon for me, please!

    I think this Jade Pearl is a Modern color for a Modern type Telecaster.

    The big danger is, FMIC will discontinue it at some point and the owners will be owners of memorabilia. This happens with cars also. I have no idea what people are thinking of right now, buying metallic brown cars.

    I like it OK... I probably would not look for one that color to buy but if I found a good deal on one I wouldn't turn it down based on the color.

    I like it. One of my favorite modern colors -- if I were to get an American Standard, this would probably be my first choice. As others have said, it looks especially good with rosewood.
