TLDR: Here's my long sought after Sage Green Telecaster! Long version: A long time ago in a small Texas town I was browsing a sleepy old guitar shop. Buried towards the back past the Gibson and Fender stands there was a Sage Green Telecaster that caught my eye. Up until then I had only played over humbuckers and immediately fell in love with the twangy slap sound of the bridge pickup. I wasn't even old enough to drive yet, but had to have it. The shop owner must have seen how I lit up when I played it (or maybe it was just how long I sat there making noise and was tired of hearing it, who knows) and called me over to talk about buying it. A short conversation later he said he'd let me do a layaway type of deal on it, which he didn't usually do. After months of mowing my neighbors yards I was able to go pick it up. I had just previously gotten my license a month or so before and felt like I was on cloud nine driving home. Slide the timeline forward five years and I was shipping off to basic training, leaving my possessions of my roommates. After I got home a few months later I had learned they sold all of my stuff while I was gone assuming I was never coming back. I've been craving this guitar ever since, almost as much as the day I signed layaway papers. Every few years or so I'd try to track one down but with no success – these are apparently stupid hard to find. Now to just a few weeks ago. I got the itch to play again, something I blame on the miss and her desire to learn how to play the violin. I started doing some digging to find what the color name was; surf green, seafoam all yielded the wrong colors. Finally after just browsing a telecaster forum I learned it was called Sage Green and the search was firing on all cylinders. This one popped up on ebay with a set of SD pickups and offered the seller less than what they were asking for it if they could take the Duncans out. To my surprise they agreed and shipped it out the next day. After missing my estimated delivery date by nearly 2 weeks it showed up at my door with a box from Lindy Fralin. I ripped it apart, cleaning and shielding the cavities, then spent a few hours soldering the new electronics all together. I am ecstatic! Ignore the scratches on the door. Puppies, joy.
