I guess it's all a part of a new appreciation of the '70's, although a lot of that stuff was ugly the first time around. Maybe they'll bring back "Plum Crazy," which was a Dodge color used on Dodge Darts.
Definite YAY!!! for me!!
Originally I set out to order an SSS American Standard in Olympic White. All of the dealers I checked were out of them. However, they were expecting more. I put one on order.
Then........I came across these green models! Not only did I cancel my dream white guitar, (which I have seen some of them yellow with time), but I decided on the beefier HSS pickup configuration.
I ordered an HSS Jade Pearl Metallic with a stunningly contrasted rosewood neck!
Because the color is metallic and reflective, it changes with light and is hard to photograph. It is so incredibly awesome in person!!! The photos just don't capture the richness of it. The rosewood neck with this color is a must in my opinion. I love this guitar, it is a player!!
Does anyone know if this is a limited color? It may not have started that way, perhaps not as popular? IDK but I have noticed they are not plentiful or are special order only.
Anyway if you love rich color this guitar is VERY COOL! It's my fav thus far. The sound and playability, delicious!
As far as I know, it's always been a standard colour. Doesn't seem very popular, though. The colour reminds me of Aston Martin Almond Green.
It's a big yes for me.
I definitly like the jade metallic better with a rosewood board. Works on either strat or Tele. Just gotta have rosewood. For me.
I thought jade green metallic was a new colour based on a Lexus car paint colour? No?
Yes, as far as I'm aware, it's a new colour that was introducted when they revised the line with the controversial body contour. I have no idea whether Fender were inspired by, or based it on, a Toyota luxury division colour.
I voted yes.
On a Strat with maple neck....yes.
Do not like on a Tele or rosewood neck.
I like it a lot on Strats with rosewood boards... and I think black plastics would look great in it as well. I'd have it like this: (a Photoshop mock-up I did when I was planning an HH Strat)
Very difficult color to photograph accurately... it looks all kinds of different ways in various photographs, but is great in person.
I recently bought a Midnight Wine Strat, which I was impressed with, but felt the color was a bit too "purple" (not burgundy, like wine) for my liking. So... it is going to be exchanged for... guess what... a Jade Pearl Metallic Strat, with a rosewood board. It will then receive a black loaded pick guard with... two humbuckers! Just like the photo above.
It does look better on a Strat than a Tele...
Never been a big fan of green, but that color is okay. I think it would look better with a different color pickguard. Mint, cream, pearl or black.
Jade Pearl Metallic... I say YAY! Arrived today and I love it. Very subtle color, in cool color temperature light it takes on desert sage green tones and in warmer color temperature lighting there are gold tones and highlights. Understated overall, which I really like.
I've seen a lot of images of Jade Pearl which are not representative of the color in real life. These photos are quite close to how the color looks in both cool and warmer lighting.
In cool colored light:
Here with a 2012 Les Paul Standard Trans Amber +++ Top and a 2014 Mystic Red American Standard Strat. As you can see, in warmer toned lighting, the color exudes warmer, gold tones:
Wasn't sure about it when it first came out, but like it now..........with rosewood board.
I just put down money on one!!!
I like it but mostly as a relic with a bit of nitro yellow age to it. I would take either rosewood or maple board.
I voted for Yay with a rosewood board.
I like this color with a maple fretboard and a mint/black/mint to highlight the greens in the body.
I'd actually LOVE that insane Plum color purple from the car back a bit in the thread on a tele with a white/black/white pickguard with an uncovered neck pickup/black strat neck pickup.
Edit: it would be my prince tribute tele, I'd name it "Bob George"
