    ....I kinda like it.

    after negotiating the price down a bit, I noticed the ad said ‘faded’ fiesta red. I decided to roll the dice and this is what I ended up with. Sorta gaudy, sorta awesome. Almost enough parts laying around put it all together.

    "But" nothing, lots of guitars (particularly Fenders and other "space-agey" designs) look fantastic in pink.

    I've been contemplating a pink Warmoth body for my JM's neck, guts and hardware, myself.

    Fiesta Red has a very pink hue. I’ve owned two and my daughter always referred to them as pink. One of Fender’s best colors.

    Kind of look like the knobs that were on the fender fuzz unit reissues

    Edit: I’m wrong they don’t have that silver top

    I'm discovering that guitars are the only pink object guys can own and still be manly.... of course, I'm sure none of them are called "pink", but instead things like "salmon", etc. Kind of the way nail polish, which is red, has about 30 million names for "red".

    I like pink too. It has its place. That is, I will wear a pink shirt, but--call me wrong if you must--not pink underwear. Pink guitar? Sure!

    I have one Fiesta Red guitar and I agree it's supposed to look like that, and it looks like that new with no wear as well. It's a red with more white than yellow. Of course can look differently under different light.

    In fact, if you looks for pics of the new Fiesta Red Fender tele on Fender's site or dealers', you'll see that it looks similar.

    Please don't tell anyone, but my favorite color is pink. I have an almost embarrassing amount of pink clothes, accessories and other stuff. A pink guitar is high on my list. I open myself up to ridicule from the guys, but the ladies love it, so I'm willing to put up with it.

    I approve of all the guitars seen in this thread!
