    A definite no from me. It does suit a strat more than a tele to my eyes. I prefer a rosewood board normally but this might actually look better with maple. The rosewood and jade remind me of dirt and grass.

    I have a Tele in Jade Pearl, and I love the color even more now than when I bought it. DHart, in post #75 above, is correct about the light you're viewing it in: this color can look anywhere from gray to gold depending on light and positioning.

    My vote is yes it is one of my favorite solid colors in a telecaster maple or rosewood neck

    Jade Pearl Metallic Tele

    I really loved this color, but I did modify mine a bit. I replaced the white pickguard with black (and added some black Ernie Ball knobs), then upgraded to some Joe Barden PUs which really gave it a great look (opinion) and amazing sound (objective fact). I also like the contoured back of the newer American standards. I also added some locking tuners, and I think this is every bit as good as a Deluxe American. I am very happy with it.

    Ryvorn... I think the black guard and rosewood board go with the Jade Pearl like peanut butter and jelly! Looks awesome. Congrats.

    Thanks DHart. I like your Strat, too. The cream colored PUs look great on the Jade Pearl Metallic. It's a great color. Glad Fender introduced it to the American Standards.

    I am going to try out one of my black guards w/black covers and knobs on the Jade Strat. I think it will look good. Not sure which I will prefer though, yet.

    Voted nah. Can't see the appeal of any "metallic" color.
