That red certainly is something.
Personally, I went for the two tone over ash:
Crimson red has the Ash body - go for it.
I have one with a rosewood fretboard - love the black SP on the red trans body
I'm generally not a fan of rosewood fingerboards, but that's a seriously pretty guitar
Here's my oly White with rw board and my old ja90 in crimson with ash body.
I reckon both your colours are cool just make sure you get a player aswell as a looker .

The two tone sunburst is a classic.. But that red looks soo good!
3 burst black pickguard
+1 I love Blizzard Pearl! I am generally a maple fretboard kind of guy, but the rosewood FB with Blizzard Pearl is killer!
As long as it has a Rosewood Fretboard - any color will be fine.
+1. Looks good on the red and the natural.
I want a rosewood boarded Tele, but am afraid I won't like it.
I've never had one I've kept for more than a year. Something about maple and the tele.
Heck, even the strat and maple. Guess it's more a fender thing with me, where as Gibson is more rosewood.
+2 on the rosewood
With regard to the candy cola red tele I bought my son for Christmas - I should have elaborated more, not only is it light, it sounds great. I was shocked at how loud it was. I play a 1994 LP Special with SD dual coil P90's. I think the AM STD is louder and it just sounds fantastic. I am seriously thinking of trading mine in for a 2 tone, 3 tone, or really about any color - with a maple fret board.
I told all my kids if they took the time to learn how to play an instrument, I'd buy them a decent instrument. I spent big bucks for a flute for my daughter! But boy can she play - it is worth it. Now if they want extras (different mouth piece, pedals, Amp, etc. they need to save their money).
BTW, I was in a GC and they had a 60th anniversary thin skin in 2-tone burst. It was killer - but more than I wanted to spend.
Anyway, good luck on your search.
"going for color is a fashion statement"
I disagree... we all have color preferences... whether it is cars or houses or guitars..
I dislike more colors than I like; a de-selection process.
My taste in colors hasn't changed since I was about 8 years old, and this is through nearly 60 years of "fashion" changes....
Cars were dark single colors.. then 2 tones then pastel 2 tones then metallics then to light solids... same goes for clothes over the years
Appliances went through the avocado green and harvest gold period, now we are back to stainless and white...
Selecting a guitar because the color is the current fad may be a "fashion statement" but a choice because you simply like it is a preference.
Seen some beautiful two and three tone burst with wonderful grain. I'd love the burst, but holding out for some fantastic grain underneath
