Any 'Fiesta Red' Strat owners around? Perhaps some pics?
I biult this one last fall - it's really nice. It's a MIJ '57 reissue Strat body in alder shot in Fiesta Red. I had a mint green 8 hole pickguard made by Warmoth. It sports Van Zandt True Vintage pickups a RS "super" volume pot and a CTS master tone pot with .047 PIO cap. The pickguard and all cavities are shielded - it's very quiet. The neck is a highly figured Warmoth "Pro" with a Pau Ferro board and 6100 frets that have been leveled, crowned and dressed. A bone nut and Kluson tuners complete the package. Bridge is a Wilkinson vintage with steel block and I bent the arm to be more like a Callaham "64". All in all it's a great looking, great playing and a great sounding axe AND it's for sale.
Been in the family a long time. My father purchased it in October 1962 (its dated April 1962 and a slab board). He kept it pristine for a whole two months until he let Keith Richards borrow it for a Stones gig and after their set Keith promptly threw in on the stage!
Some years later it became mine and it comes out from time to time. Still sounds amazing.
Here it is with the Turner Model 1 and the Suhr,
i've got the chris rea signature strat...it's fiesta red...but i've got no pics
I don't think that's what Ludwig called it though.
That is a way cool kit
I have one... 2000 Fender CS NOS 1956 in Fiesta Red... Love it!
Here ya go.....
Hell, if we're all pullin' 'em out, here's mine. It was made by somebody else....
"Whitey" and the "Redheaded Stepchild." Both are CS '69 Heavy Relics so they sport the HUGE headstocks as well.
I love my Strat...none of the shots show the true color. Always a bit too bright...but I like this one:
That wasn't very nice of Keith to throw a borrowed guitar onto the stage. Glad it's okay and that you still have it.
goodness that suhr is a looker. what pickups does it got?
