I'm with you...never liked Fiesta Red. It reminds me of cheap $50 Squiers. I prefer CAR by far.
fiesta red for strats
candy apple red for teles
Fiesta Red cannot be the worst as long as Dakota red exists.
You would hate this one!
I believe that's a Ford.
mmmmm Fiesta! MJT. over white.

Bet you wouldn't kick my refinished '54 outta bed after sampling her three-dimensional, bell-like tones. There are even a few haunting mids to had in there if you treat her right.
1954 STRATOCASTER by Twangmeister posted Oct 31, 2019 at 10:22 AM
Man oh man - me want!
Agree, but I've found that Dakota Red guitars give off more of that "Amp in the room" sound, even when I have an amp in the room. Oh the sacrifices I make for the Toanz!
I think that can happen a lot.
That looks like some flavor of Starburst.
I’ll take that bet. Send her my way for a full evaluation.
well “worst fender color” is like “worst ice cream flavor.”
im not crazy about that last tub of ice cream i bought, but I still ate the whole container!
my #1 is taos turquoise and i’m sure lotsa guys think the color is horrid.
I love fiesta red on a tele with maple neck
It's sickly especially with a maple fretboard.
...also, I found this one with gold hardware that looks pretty sweet!
Bought last year when my friend who wanted a sunburst Strat with a maple board said it was too much for her. I had made an offer for her that was accepted, so I felt obligated to buy it.
This is a 2003 Antigua Stratocaster "Crafted in Japan." It didn't originally come with a case, but this one did which would have been $120 at the time. The guitar and case look brand new, so I'm not sorry I bought it.
I had a long post typed out that I lost when trying to post the image, so I'll make this Antigua history brief.
Originally appeared on the Coronado by accident in the 60s, 1978-79 for the Strat and Telecaster and other models. 2003-04 "Crafted in Japan" like mine, the one pictured. In 2008, Sam Ash ordered 100 guitars, built in the Fender Custom Shop, for the Eric Clapton Crossroads Center, with $100,000 to be donated from the sale of the guitars. Just saw #80 for sale for $4,999 which I think was the price new. In 2012, another limited run was produced, but this time in Mexico.
Not counting the Clapton Antiguas, the 1978-79 models command more money, even ones in poor condition.
