She's a beauty!
I never thought of that but you're right, Goldie is a BSB dog alright. We should have called him Leo
Great job. Great color. Great dog. Great patio!
Does look like a nice view!
Just curious as to why you picked that particular color. Was that offered originally? Nice job
That looks sharp. Well done!
Now give that dog a treat.
Well I don't think this colour (Fiesta Red?) was offered as a custom colour in 1973, so this was probably not a "period correct" choice.
When i first went to see François at his workshop he had a red Strat in for repair that he had refinished a few years ago and I thought it was a great colour. So I had that in mind from the start. I also thought of blonde (see the pics in the 1st post in this thread and there are 2 sample colour sheets on top of the white primed body) but I wasn't sure how it would come out.
I also considered Sonic Blue, which I really like and I even took along my Sonic Blue Strat as a guide at one point. However I thought my guitar might be confused for a Classic 60's Baja.
So in end I went for the Red, which sort of makes my old Tele unique
Can't go wrong with Red ! especially Fiesta Red !! The last year Fiesta red was offered was 1969 ...but that's ok it's a refin anyway so way not have it a color you like and will enjoy !
Look great BTW
....beautiful,good call on the red!
Love the colour, great call!
That color rocks! Reminds me of my Ford truck which is painted "Race Red".
It's not just the Tele that looks great, what a fantastic view from your house! Send some of that weather up here.
I would've chosen the same color! great looking vintage tele!
