    It was the fiesta red 50’s deal . At Elderly.

    it was light, I liked it. Especially the neck .

    But - tiny frets and I really want a rw board this time.

    the 60’s vintera doesn’t have the bigger 50’s neck profile .

    so - the modified Vintera that I want (boat hull 50’s shape with a rw board and medium jumbos) doesn’t exist.

    I really liked the Fiesta Red Vintera 50's I played at a Guitar Center. Very nice. And I even liked the maple board and vintage-small frets and the radius. In short, I'd definitely enjoy one of those if I had it.

    They have a great sound/feel.

    I played a freakin' classic vibe thinline, BRAND new out the box, today after playing a vintage '68 thinline and the damn classic vibe was great. Disgusted I was, lol. It didn't have pickups in the realm of the '68 but it had the spank nonetheless.


    Too many good cheap guitars out there.
