Fender Custom Shop Telecaster in Sherwood Green Metallic

Post by Meriphew » Fri Jan 01, 2021 3:00 pm

I've been watching this Tele on Reverb for a couple months now. I'm really surprised it wasn't purchased already (had 80 watchers). FCS Teles are my favorite guitars, and I really wanted a Sherwood Green guitar, so I scooped it up today. Here's a few pics from the listing.

Thx! This is my 4th Fender Custom Shop Tele w/binding, so I guess it's safe to say I love the binding too!

Congrats on the beautiful new guitar. Love double bound teles and that is just the perfect shade of Sherwood.

Nice Sherwood! I like the greener version like this. Some guitars it looks turquoise and I don't like that.

Does the colour look exactly like what the camera captured?

I know when I take pictures, it never matches.. 🤔 🤣

Really nice. Rosewood + Sherwood look great together.

I find unbound Teles a bit more comfortable, but the binding definitely makes the color pop here.
