Hmmmmmm....I both like it and hate it at the same time!
Buy it and play the Geezus out of it.
You were on the right track, until the last sentence. I hear this same thing, from the "relic" guys, dissing those who try too hard to preserve their guitars.
Why this guitar works for me is, it is Blue with just a little too much Red and it hits a sweet spot, nobody I can recall ever found before. This is not a "Prince" color - his purples are REALLY purple and this is close to not purple at all. 90% of the net buyers of this guitar do not know who Danish Pete is and that's cool. This less rusticated finish is a wonderful bridge between the regular Roadworns and more conventionally presented new guitars.

I've been interested in these new road worn colors. The Candy Apple Red and the Purple Metallic. The Purple appeals to me more, but I wish it had the ash body like the Candy Apple Red one. Also, did anyone notice the change in specs from the current roadworns? a modern "c" neck? Also, not a fan of having to take off the neck to adjust the truss rod. There's just enough wrong with it that I'll probably pass.
Neck shape: C modern
Neck wood: Maple
Scale length: 25.5 in.
Truss rod: Standard
Neck finish: Road Worn Urethane
Hope this helps. I'm so thinking about getting it. Love Danish Pete's tele.
Someone at Fender likes purple. I do too. I had the BM CV 60s Strat, but I couldn't tolerate the painted headstock, which made it look like a toy, or a Daisy Rock. So, I now have the Sunburst CV 60s, which plays and sounds even better. Fender is also making the Hendrix in purple now (I have a black one).
But I cant tell from the pix, it does seem that the TR might be near the headstock.
I need to go see these in person.
There's flaws in the way that computers capture certain colors. One can't tell with high precision what this would look like on the bandstand. It is a somewhat risky choice - certainly not a "safe" choice. Possible you might get tired of it.
Right. But no GC's around me have it in stock.
I hear you.
If you had some business reason to go to Atlanta, they have enough stores, they're liable to have a few. But that's a fairly long ride.
I sure miss that place called The Guitar Cabin in Anderson. Gone 10 years now.
Well, pulled the trigger. Will see how it is Friday.
How is it? Pix please.

About 5 years ago I had a blonde 50's RW. Felt nice but I thought the wear was overdone and pickups seemed kinda harsh so it didn't last in the stable. Fast forward to this past summer and I was discussing guitars with my son and he mentioned that he wished I still had the RW because he felt he could better express himself without worrying about nicking up or scratching the guitar. Well I pulled the trigger on one of the blonde ones. Less wear and seemed warmer sounding. I gave it to my son. When I saw the red one come out I had to try it out. Didn't see that the neck shape was different. I'll have to compare to the blonde one.
I am actually very into this color! I have never seen this before. I had a BSB 50s RW that I sold sometime last year, and have regretted it since.
The difference with the blonde vs the red is there but it isn't a night and day difference to me. Maybe the blonde has a "vintage" C and the red has a standard C? The blonde is a 2018 and I noticed on today's descriptions that the standard RW 50's blonde states that it's a C. Does anyone know when it changed or have more knowledge about this revision?
Now if you really want a metallic purple limited edition guitar, and do your own relic-ing, here is one for you.
