    I am in dire need of a Fiesta Red Anderson Classic with rosewood, pearloid guard and M-series pickups. Photos of similarly colored guitars would probably drive me to place that order. Dig?

    Fiesta red with gold guard always looks super cool but I dont know if I could ever do it. It has that sickening feeling when your fingernails touch the metal.

    That was one of the first custom color Strats Fender ever did, in 1954 for Pee Wee Crayton. Fiesta Red with gold anodized guard. If you like the look but can't stand the feel you can get a clear Lexan guard and spray it gold on the back side.

    Looks nice but no logo on K line guitars? Whats up with that. Why on earth would you start a guitar company and not put logos on the headstock?

    84 Squier JV Strat in Fiesta Red. You know, one of the first Fenders from Japan. GREAT guitars! $$$ same as the US version nowadays.

    Copyright issues my guess.There's a guy here on TGP who sells decal logos.
    They're great and only $16.Think his GP name is TELE blues.
    As a matter of fact,Chris is coming out with some custom designs and has a logo design for them.

    Im not suggesting he put a fender logo on them but Im sure he could come up with his own headstock and logo but if hes assembling bodies and necks from other sources maybe he doesn't have the tools for cutting new headstock designs or something. Either way his guitars look pretty nice.

    Agreed.Till recently he was assembling parts and doing his wonderful finish work.I'd proudly use a K-line logo on my strat if I didn't already have a Fender logo on it.

    wow a whole thread devoted to the color i hate the most!

    I seriously dont like it but some of these guitars are the best ive seen in that category.

    I just dont like when they get that pasty pink kinda color.

    Yeah I hate the 'faded' fiesta red. Anderson has a color called New Fiesta Red which is meant to look like the guitar looked when it rolled off the factory line. Its deep and bright. The flamingo pink fade doesn't appeal to me at all.

    Cool looking guitar, love the color on a tele the gold guard is a really classy touch.
