    Well, it's not the Ferrari red to be completely Kimified as it felt a wee bit too orange for me, but it's quite close to classic italian Rosso Corsa. So it's as Kimi I can get. It seems it's not that hard to persuade me to make a red guitar.:)

    By stating, "but YOUR guitar is just that", I meant you made it your own. I also, generally prefer, blue-reds, that is darker tinged variants of the hue...but recent spell would suggest otherwise, with a thing for Fiesta Red.

    I usually get a funny look when I say that I feel somehow orangey reds to feel colder to me. Few tick towards to blue not to purple though really does it for me. We're in the same boat with that. But yeah, Fiesta red is an exception. It just works!

    Had some sunshine here today in Helsinki, so I managed to take some pictures that show better the color and gloss of this one. I'm also happy to find out that with Crazy Cacti overdrive and Kemper loaded with suitable Orange AD30HTC profile gives me quite Sam Lockwoodian tones as planned. Me happy!:)

    Thanks!

    I really hope I have some day a possibility to have an access to a proper workshop to build a guitar from scratch, but some patience, hand tools and tru oil allow quite nice results from unfinished prefab parts. This site has been a great inspiration for me to do things I never thought I could do. Thanks everyone!
