Throw a 3 saddle bridge on it and you'd have a cool Esquire!!
The strat's body shape is more appropriate for "those" metallics IMHO, but then again, I'm an old fart, so go with what you want.
On second thought, a tele? Nah, it's a no period.
In the picture it just looks grey. Not a great color for a Tele. In person I can imagine it might be more appealing.
I'm fan of the Sage Green Metallic (and Agave Blue and Inca Silver.) This looks a lot like them. I'd get an Am Deluxe Strat in this in a heartbeat. The Sage Green Metallic was a custom color for American Standard and American Deluxe models, too.
I always thought more=better and have always preferred opaque finishes to transparent or burst finishes.
I wish we could. But we can't.
There's a couple of "conversion" bridges, but in my estimation, it doesn't get you to the old Leo style 3 saddle bridge. A 3 mount hole bridge of any sort, with the through holes above not below the mount screws, misses the boat.
But I see FMIC is doing some high end production guitars with this new interpretation of the old 3 barrel bridge, using the traditional reference points. Maybe the 4 mount hole architecture will come back and dominate not just the MIM lines but the USA production models also.
It sure would make life a lot easier for some folks I used to love a modern 6 saddle bridge, but then after some time of being here I started loving 3 saddle bridges a lot more. Now I am like 85% vintage bridges 15% modern bridges depending on the Tele
I like Blue Agave, Sage Metallic, and I have to say that I do like this new color, Jade Pearl Metallic.
IMHO, the Maple 'board and Parchment 'guard complement the Jade Pearl very nicely.
Now, if only it didn't have that funky Body Contour...
I just found my American Standard Stratocaster in Jade Pearl (Rosewood) on my front porch today. I have to say that I was apprehensive about the color until I saw it in person. It really has it's own vibe. Kind of reminds me of a early to mid 70s last days of the muscle cars, paint job used by the big automotive makers of the era. I always like Sherwood Green and the Ocean Turquoise but this looks really good.
I voted yah, but it's not my favorite green (that's Sherwood). It is a new color though, and not some "neon" LOL! Actually I like it pretty well on strats with rosewood boards, but not as much on teles, and can't really say I like it as well with maple.
No. The only green I like is surf green....and w/ a rosewood board.
I changed the pickguard to black. Looks much better.
Let's see it
My Strat is Jade Pearl Metallic. Love the color -- and it's even better in person. But I just don't dig that color as much on a Tele. Can't say exactly why that is.
I have a JPM Strat with maple board, love it
I don't know, kind of looks like it was made for the military, I think they could have done more with this color, maybe themed it as such. It might have been a seller like that.
I like it. But as far as green goes, I love Sherwood Green Strats.
I often buy used and I have bought great guitars in colors that I would never choose if given the choice (Blizzard Pearl and Charcoal Frost come to mind) but they grow on me. Pink may be the only one I would really balk at.
I like the color a lot, just not all the modern features of the American Standard.
I love my Jade pearl Tele. Like the few that have said, the color really doesn't do it justice in pictures. I have a maple board on mine as well. Love it to pieces ! The color really stuck with me after the first week of playing it. Now, its one of my fave colors IMHO
That colour is very close to my 63 Strat, which i believe is Olive Drab.
