  • Surf Green Telecaster?

    For the last few years I've been looking for a surf green Telecaster with a maple fretboard (preferably new), and I can't find one anywhere.

    Any ideas? I swear this guitar has been haunting my dreams.
    Woo!

    haha I've been looking for seafoam- the maple board is the killer- if you're talking in general, they made mim versions with matching amps. But if you want MIA with a maple board, you pretty much have to go custom shop and bend over.

          I had to go the Warmoth route to build a Seafoam Green Strat.

                    Since we're showing off Surf Green Teles, just something I made while messing about in Kisekae. I'd love it. Maybe one day

                      My buddy is having a "Super T" guitar built for him at the moment by "US Guitars". They are out of WI and produce some great guitars. His is going to be, sea foam green w/matching headstock, maple board, body binding, humbuckers, locking tuners, flame neck...for less than a Fender Deluxe.

                      Plus, there prices aren't too bad, call them for a price though.

                        My surf green AVRI Tele is still my #1.



                        As Brian said, apparently Fender released a surf green Tele as part of the 50s Tele line a while ago, but they're incredibly difficult to find.

                        Mine is an American Vintage Reissue '62 Tele Custom, but they only come with a rosewood board. You could always get one and swap out the neck for a maple one.

                        Or, as others have said, you can build your own.

                        Fender put out a Special Edition surf green Tele, but it has a matching headstock. I'm not sure if you want that. Here's a link to one on eBay:

                          There's a loaded body (not Fender) on Ebay - $99 BIN.

                          Get a Warmoth or Allparts neck and you're good to go. Looks like it's a top-load.

                          I've had some of the old top-load MIM's and I loved them, FWIW.

                            Those are the ones with the matching amps I was talking about- but if you want MIA, you are screwed- check out wildwood's pages- there are SWEET examples of exactly what you and I are looking for; unfortunately, the prices are ... well... fender custom shop prices

                              All these pictures are driving me crazy, those are some seriously nice looking guitars.

                              As for going the Warmoth route, how difficult is it to install the electronics? That's the hurdle that's been keeping me from doing that already.

                              EDIT: After checking out what Warmoth has to offer, that seems like a really cool option. I haven't been to their site in a few years, and last time I checked it out, things were not nearly as customizable. Will they install electronics and whatnot?
