FENDER STRATOCASTER Fiesta Red, 1963
is a special guitar... for her beauty, her rarity, her story. Original
custom color "Fiesta Red", over a white coating layer and
with grey traces showing through the scew-holes and some worn spots.
No doubts about the originality of the Fiesta Red. This color was
covered at some point by a black refin (whose traces are still
visible on the vertical faces of the body routings), later patiently
and carefully removed by a very skilled professional luthier.
Unfortunately this job has removed also the clear lacquer which
probably was once over the red, and could not cancel all the traces of
the heavy sanding given before the black refin, because these were
going through the red and could not be removed without damaging the
red itself. Normal finish wear for its age.
