Ford Fiesta Red
« on: November 07, 2017, 07:50:32 AM »
On my weekly trip to my local guitar store I always see a red Ford Fiesta and the colour must be exactly the same or very close to Fiesta Red. I always think there must be a Ford designer knowing about this Fender colour. I try to find the name. Could be race red. IDk. I think this pic is quite the same. In real life it's sometimes orange and sometimes pink, like the Fender.

Fender Color Extraction



My latest P build has an 2014 AVRI '63 P body and the color is Seminole Red. Looks pretty close to Fiesta, but who knows...
Stable....for now.    www.risky-biz.com

My RI Mustang is Ocean Turquoise Metallic, which was a Fender custom colour. But it has yellowed stripes and it looks more like yellowed LPB. i think they tried to get that effect.

My Mustang GAS is slowly coming back....  :-[

I've seen a few of those Fiestas in that colour. Presumably they're simply reissuing a historic DuPont colour, rather than trying to make a visual pun off the fact that they're selling a Fiesta in Fiesta Red? Maybe they could knock out a special edition with competition stripes and a pearloid-finish roof?

If you can do the metalflake, the Mikey Way bass is a pretty nice one with a humbucker in the sweet spot. Heavy for a short scale, though.



Good sloppy playing is an art in itself. (Uwe)

That color is Race Red, and it does look a lot like Fiesta Red, but it was used on other Fords besides the Fiesta.

Not a huge fan of the Mikey Way bass, but in the back of my mind I'm thinking about tracking down an already modified Mustang reissue and then fitting one of my Gibson Thunderbird pickups.

The other thing keeping me up at night is the idea of tracking down a Rivoli reissue next year some time.
