    Fiesta red is my favorite custom color. Here is my Tele next to my 5f4 Tweed Super clone. The one on the left is mine, too -- just not Fiesta Red.

    I love the colour, always have! Alas, I just don't have one. I like the matching strap stays, too!

    OK I am playing.

    This is my 1982 Reissue Fiesta RED which I bought in 1982. It is now loaded with ABBY Signature 69 hand wounds.
    The Graffiti Yellow is one of my favorites (2017 1957 Strat w/ 50s Pups)- and laying in front is a Telecaster Custom '62 Surf Green with white Binding loaded with CS Hand wound . IMG_3949.JPG

    This is a guitar I'm having custom made for my son.

    He's been wanting a Fiesta Red/ Tort for the longest time.

    He also want certain specs on the guitar that I just couldn't buy off the shelf.

    The guitar should be completed next week, and I should be able to surprise him with it.

    He has no idea he's getting this guitar.

    Awesome gift, a beauty! What humbucker did you choose for the bridge and how do you match it to the single coils in terms of volume, pots, etc.?

    Fiesta red with maple neck 50's tele's are one of my favorite combinations. I'm surprised I haven't seen any on this site or in any of the fiesta red threads I've looked through.

    I'm working on putting one together now but in the mean time my fiesta red strats.

    Thanks Contoller.

    The single coils are Suhr vintage V70's in the neck and middle. The middle pickup is also reverse wound.

    The bridge pickup is also a Suhr vintage SSV humbucker.

    The V70's and the SSV work together amazingly well and really complement each other.

    These are the exact pickups I have in my Suhr Classic Pro SSH guitar.

    My son loves these pickups and has used the Suhr in church service extensively.

    I'm not sure of all the pots and wiring used in the guitar, but they are quality stuff.

    The body is a very light ash and the neck is a 4A flamed roasted maple.

    This guitar is probably going to end up under 7 lbs.

    This guitar is going to blow my son away in tone and looks.

    I kinda wish this were MY guitar, but my son is an amazing musician, and he's more worthy of it than I am. :D
